What does the HB
Police Department do after an earthquake?
After the quake police management (in this scenario)
attempt to make contact with the Watch Commander
On-Duty to determine the impact of the quake in
Hermosa Beach. (All Police Management Personnel
live in the South Bay). Based on the reports being
received we can authorize additional personnel be
called in for service. We also communicate with the
Fire Department and our Area G representative to
determine if the epicenter jurisdiction is
requesting assistance. The police role is to
respond to life saving emergency calls, secure the
infrastructure of the community and in a large scale
events we would be utilized to evacuate residents
and prevent looting of homes and businesses.
Chief of Police
a written estimate.
Compare services and prices before making a
final decision. Also, read the fine print. Some
contractors charge a fee for a written estimate,
which is often applied to the cost of subsequent
repairs they make.
Contractors should be willing to provide names
of previous customers. Call several former
customers who had similar work done to make sure
they were satisfied with the job.
for proof of insurance.
Make sure the contractor carries general
liability insurance and workers' compensation.
If the contractor is not insured, the homeowner
may be liable for accidents that occur on the
reliable, licensed contractors.
Call your local Better Business Bureau (and
other local sources) to inquire about a
business before signing a contract.
Insist on a written contract.
A complete contract should state clearly all
tasks to be performed, all associated costs and
the payment schedule. Never sign a blank
contract or one with blank spaces. Make
sure the contract clearly states who will apply
for the necessary permits or licenses. Have a
lawyer review the contract if substantial costs
are involved, and keep a copy for your records.
guarantees in writing.
Any guarantees made by the contractor should be
written into the contract. The guarantee should
state clearly what is guaranteed, who is
responsible for the guarantee and how long the
guarantee is valid.
Obtain a local building permit, if required.
Permits may be required for site work including
demolition and reconstruction. Contact your
local government for permit information.
final payments when the work is completed.
Do not sign completion papers or make the final
payment until the work is completed to your
satisfaction. A reputable contractor will not
threaten you or pressure you to sign if the job
is not finished properly.
Avoid on-the-spot cash payments. The safest
route is to write a check to the contracting
company. A reasonable down payment is 30 percent
of the total cost of the project to be paid upon
initial delivery of materials. Federal law gives
consumers a three-day "cooling off" period for
unsolicited door-to-door sales of more than $25.

FIRE CHIEF'S CORNER
Sunday night's earthquake is a subtle reminder from
Mother Nature that we must be prepared when disaster
strikes. H1N1 is another reminder
that our preparedness must encompass a wide-range of
potential circumstances. Earthquakes
are sudden and relatively short-term, though rebuilding
following a major earthquake can take years.
H1N1 is a creeping danger that may or may not
become worse and could require emergency services and
the public to be at high alert for months at a time.
Sunday's earthquake also provides an opportunity for me
to relate to you what the fire department does after the
ground stops shaking. Following an
earthquake, the department will conduct a "windshield
survey" of the City. This means that
units and crews will tour the City and note particular
trouble spots (i.e. life hazards, fires, flooding,
structure damage, street damage, etc).
During this survey we try not to commit a unit to
a particular emergency. The goal is
to get the "big picture" and prioritize, or triage,
emergencies. Triage means that we
will attempt to mitigate those emergencies that have to
most benefit for the most people. In
essence, because resources are severely stretched in a
disaster scenario, triage is necessary in attempting to
do the most good for the most people.
This is where the citizens come in.
A program such as Map Your Neighborhood is a great
benefit to the fire department.
Organized neighborhoods are better able to take care of
themselves and free up fire and police resources for
major emergencies. Neighborhood
Watch Block Captains are also very helpful in that they
provide us with a contact who can give us a summary on
the condition of their particular block/neighborhood.
H1N1 has provided us with a test run for when and if
Avian Flu (H5N1) ever becomes widely transmittable
between humans and reaches pandemic proportions.
In particular, we must note that schools closed
in some areas in response to H1N1 and presented parents
with child care issues. Who will
take care of your children if you are still working and
the schools close? Be prepared in
case the banks, grocery stores, pharmacies, gas
stations, etc., close for a while in a widespread H5N1
pandemic or following a major earthquake.
Now is the time to answer questions such as

is so important. Remember, the

it may be three to seven days before outside assistance

earthquake shutoff valve on your gas meter.
We have listed their contact information below

We appreciate both of these HBNW residents
for offering to assist neighbors in preparedness. HBNW
is neutral on whether your home should or should not get
a shutoff valve. It is your choice based on your
research and your peace of mind.
The recent 5.0 earthquake was a reminder
to all of us that we live in earthquake country. If you
do not have an automatic earthquake valve installed on
your home, now is the time.
Automatic shut-off valves were highly
recommended in the Map Your Neighborhood (MYN)
According to the MYN training, 67% of
homes that caught on fire after the Northridge
earthquake were due to gas leaks.
Automatic gas shutoff valves will
turn your gas off in the event of a 5.4 or greater
If you are out-of-town, you won't
have to worry about getting someone else to coming
to your house to check the gas meter.

to Neighborhood Watch members. Call for a quote: (310)
Pacific Coast Plumbing Co. can
install an earthquake valve on the average home with a 1

IN THE NEWS...
Sunday's 4.7 jolt a nerve-jangling reminder of quake
As soon as his home stopped shaking,
switched on his ham radio and began listening for
Hermosa Beach Amateur Radio Association members.
The group spent a couple hours after
Sunday's earthquake trading information. And though no
major injuries or damage were reported in the area, the
rattler was a perfect dress rehearsal that scientists
agreed could have been much worse.
"People are more into cell phones and
computers now," Hartley said, "but they don't always
realize that when their stuff doesn't work, ours will."
Though the quake resulted in no serious
injuries or substantial damage in the South Bay cities,
Los Angeles International Airport or the Port of Los
Angeles, the magnitude-4.7 temblor and subsequent
aftershocks rattled enough nerves to get some people
thinking about the next quake.
By Monday afternoon, four people had contacted Hartley
to learn more about ham radios, and a handful of folks
sought information about disaster preparedness from
Hermosa's tightly knit
Neighborhood Watch, said co-founder Kelly Kovac-Reedy.
"It was just another little friendly
reminder that the `Big One' they talk about is
definitely going to be scary," she said. "The more
prepared we can be, the better."
ATM card users victimized at Redondo
As many as 1,000 people who used ATM
cards to buy gas at a Redondo Beach service station
have become victims of thieves who intercepted their
personal information and withdrew $200,000 from
their bank accounts, police said Wednesday. Theft
reports began trickling in to the police station on
May 12, but ballooned as the week progressed. The
common denominator: Each victim had used a automated
teller machine card at the Arco station at Prospect
Avenue and Pacific Coast Highway. "Some of our own
police officers have been victims," Redondo Beach
police Sgt. Phil Keenan said. "I would recommend to
anybody who has gone to the Arco at Prospect and PCH:
`Scrutinize your bank statements."'
JOHN BOGERT: It'll be up to us when the
Big One hits
In a giant
quake, in a really big monster like the one waiting cocked
and ready on our end of the San Andreas Fault, there will be
lots of hurt.
There will be damaged hospitals and an
overwhelming number of injuries along with collapsed
buildings, fires and millions of people who will suddenly
realize that the freeway bridges we drive under and across
each day have suddenly become roadblocks.
The people in charge of our safety couldn't
be more graphic in their advice. They have been reminding us
for decades that we will be on our own for at least three
Magnitude 4.7 Earthquake Jolts Los Angeles
Seismologist Lucy Jones of the USGS said that it appears the
earthquake appears to be consistent with a rupture on the
Newport-Inglewood fault. She added that as the quake didn't
break to the surface, it is difficult to identify any fault.
The same fault was responsible for the 6.3 magnitude Long
Beach quake in 1933 , said Jones.
NOTE: In almost every report I have heard
or read, when people felt the earthquake many reported that
they began to panic and run. This is why there are many
injuries after an earthquake that could have been
prevented. The safest plan to follow is to DROP, COVER, and
HOLD ON! Practice it now.
Drop, cover, and hold on!
Learn what to do during an earthquake,
whether you're at home, at work, at school or just out and
about. Taking the proper actions, such as "Drop, Cover, and
Hold On", can save lives and reduce your risk of death or
injury. During earthquakes, drop to the floor, take cover
under a sturdy desk or table, and hold on to it firmly. Be
prepared to move with it until the shaking stops.
"According to a study from the University of California in
Los Angeles (UCLA), 55% of the injuries during the 1994
Northridge earthquake were caused by falling furniture or
objects. Only one percent of injuries were caused by
building damage. Other injuries were due to people falling
or behaving dangerously. Many of these injuries could have
been prevented through actions taken before the earthquake."
Sunday night's 4.7 tembler and subsequent
aftershocks that rattled the Los Angeles area reminds us all
that disaster can strike at any time. While the quake left
no significant damage, plenty of nerves were rattled and
many were left wondering just how prepared are we if the
'Big One' hits?
Scientists are predicting with near certainty
that a catastrophic earthquake will strike Southern
California within the next 20 years.
The Red Cross encourages everyone to be
prepared and offers the following tips on what to do when
the shaking begins:
DROP, COVER, AND HOLD ON! Move only a few
steps to a nearby safe place. Stay indoors until the
shaking stops and you're sure it's safe to exit. Stay
away from windows. In a high-rise building, expect the
fire alarms and sprinklers to go off during a quake.
If you are in bed, hold on and stay
there, protecting your head with a pillow.
If you are outdoors, find a clear spot
away from buildings, trees, and power lines. Drop to the
If you are in a car, slow down and drive
to a clear place. Stay in the car until the shaking
chief does not raise swine flu alert level
GENEVA (AP) -- The chief of
the World Health Organization says she is not raising the
world swine flu alert level just yet. ...
WHO chief Dr. Margaret Chan
says the swine flu epidemic is in "a grace period" with the
WHO alert remaining at phase 5 out of a possible six for the
last month. She told the WHO annual assembly on Monday that
no one can say how long this period will last.
Chan says the danger now is
that the swine flu virus could mix with other flu strains
and become more dangerous. ...
Dr. Richard Besser, acting
director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, told the WHO meeting that the outbreak is "not
winding down" in the United States and "widespread
transmission" continues. He also said the epidemic also was
not over in Mexico.
Stakes rise as drug war threatens to cross border
The violence that has spilled over into the
U.S. has been restricted to the players in the drug trade --
trafficker-on-trafficker, DEA agents say. But law
enforcement officials and analysts who spoke with CNN agree
that it is only a matter of time before innocent people on
the U.S. side get caught in the cartel crossfire.
"It's coming. I guarantee, it's coming," said
Michael Sanders, a DEA spokesman in Washington.
