EARTHQUAKE SAFETY TIPS
THE ONION OCTOBER 1999
To minimize loss and damage in a quake, try not to own
Practice your burrowing-out-from-under-40-tons-of-rubble
skills ahead of time.
For those who fear earthquakes, it may comfort you to
know that a majority of the damage during the 1906 San
Francisco earthquake did not come from the tremors
themselves. Instead, it was from the raging,
out-of-control fires that consumed most of the city.
A doorway is the safest place to be during a quake.
Eat, sleep and work in doorways.
Be sure to mail your house-insurance payments a full
five business days before a major earthquake strikes.
Earthquakes can strike without warning, and being prepared
for such a disaster can mean the difference between life and
death. These are meant to be funny tips and we hope you
have laughed. Most of us live with denial that allows us to
live our daily lives. Take a moment to think about what you
can do to prepare now for an earthquake. Threats we can
face deminishes anxiety and allows one to take control over
Tonight at the City Council Meeting, HB Emergency
Preparedness Advisory Commission will accept a

GETTING TO KNOW YOUR NEIGHBORS
Hi Kelly -
We are having our every other month Neighborhood Bagel Bash
at my house (Chez 532) on Sunday the 19th of April at 10AM.
You are welcome to join us even for a few moments if you can
(of course we would love you to stay longer). You are
welcome to post this in the weekly report so others that
live near can join us. Our group is growing which is great -
I think it is important the little kids know their
neighbors. Also, I was going to stop by the police station
and ask if they want to drop by for a bagel or a donut.
Hope to see you - Happy Easter - Dy
Thank you Dyan! I appreciate the invitation for neighboring
blocks to stop by for a meet and greet. Dyan is the Block
Captain for the 500 block of 11th Street.
Thompson with HBPD has invited the Sunday AM officers to
stop by the block.

Communication in a disaster is up to you.
We would like to welcome
our newest Hermosa Beach Amateur Radio Operators Shawn Ueda
and Bonnie Sewell from 8th Street/Ocean Drive.
Bonnie had no knowlege of Amateur Radio and took the class
offered by Walt Ordway. She passed the technician test this
past Saturday. Shawn was familiar with the concept.
Shawn: The reason I really didn't need the class is because
I did both my undergraduate and graduate work in electrical
engineering at Columbia University. My main focus are
micro-electronics, which consists of device physics, and
circuit theory, (things in your cell phone, IPOD, MP3
player...) and computer architecture. Communication is not
one of my focus but know a little bit more than the average

Every Monday, Kelly views the HBPD Daily Activity Logs for
the prior week. With the assistance of Ofc. JR Smith or Lt.
Tom Thompson, we select crimes that our residents can learn
from in order to TARGET HARDEN their home, car or

about how the crime occurred, time of day and if there are
any suggestions for the resident to learn from the crimes
selected to further secure their home or car.

FIRE CHIEF'S CORNER
Plan Ahead. If a fire breaks out in your home, you may have
only a few minutes to get out safely once the smoke alarm
sounds. Everyone needs to know what to do and where to go
if there is a fire. This week I have listed some home fire
safety tips, things to do when your smoke alarm activates,
and some facts that may be a little surprising to you.
· Draw a home escape plan and discuss it with everyone in
· Practice the plan at night and during the day with
everyone in your home, twice a year.
· Know at least two ways out of every room, if possible.
Make sure all doors and windows leading outside open
· Have an outside meeting place (like a tree, light pole or
mailbox) a safe distance from the home where everyone should
· Practice using different ways out.
· Teach children how to escape on their own in case you
can't help them.
· Close doors behind you as you leave.
THE ALARM SOUNDS...
· If the smoke alarm sounds, get out and stay out. Never
go back inside for people or pets.
· If you have to escape through smoke, get low and go under
the smoke to your way out.
· Feel the knob and door before opening a door.
· Call the fire department from outside your home.
SOME IMPORTANT FACTS
· According to an NFPA survey, only one in four Americans
have actually developed and practiced a home fire escape
· While 66% of Americans have an escape plan in case of a
fire, only 35% of those have practiced it.
· One-third of American households who made an estimate
thought they would have at least 6 minutes before a fire in
their home would become life-threatening. The time
available is often less.
· And only 8% said their first thought on hearing a smoke
alarm would be to get out!

1000 block of South Catalina Avenue:
early morning hours
Between 3/22/09 (Sunday) and 3/23/09 (Monday), three (3)

Robbery (strong arm),
At about 3:00 a.m., a victim was walking south bound on the
bicycle path, and observed three (3) male juveniles walking
the opposite direction. These males passed the victim. A
female, walking with these male subjects, waved to the
victim as she passed. One of the males accosted the victim
from behind by wrapping his arms around the victim's neck.

Italy especially vulnerable to quake damage
L'AQUILA, Italy (AP) -- The earthquake that devastated this
medieval town would likely have caused only limited damage
in Japan and other affluent countries in quake-prone
regions, but a variety of factors conspire to make Italy
particularly vulnerable, experts said.
While L'Aquila sits about a half mile (a kilometer) from the
epicenter of Monday's 6.3-magnitude quake in the Apennine
region of Abruzzo, geologists and civil engineers attributed
most of the blame for damage on inadequate buildings.
