After a quake, be cautious about every movement. Debris may be below your feet, ceiling tiles may be hanging down & even in daylight the inside of buildings can be dark with power outages and dust. Take your time to assess your situation. Change shoes if necessary. You may want gloves, goggles & mask to protect yourself from debris and dust. Be ready to drop, cover & hold on with each aftershock. Take a moment now to congratulate yourself for your participation!

STOP CRIME 
 

 

crime divider
Everyone plays a role in creating and maintaining a safe environment.
 
Report Crime - Don't assume that your neighbors have already reported the crime or that the police already know. Report criminal or suspicious activity each and every time it occurs.       DIRECT HB Dispatch Number 310-524-2750
 
  
Reasons for calling the non-emergency number include, but are not limited to the following:   
  • You want to report a nuisance, such as a noise or parking complaint.
  • To report a non-emergency crime, one that did not just occur, and the
    suspect(s) are not in the immediate area. 
  • You have questions about something suspicious occurring in your
    neighborhood, and you are not sure it is criminal activity.
  • Solicitor just came to your door or are in the neighborhood.
  • Trash diggers.
  • Unusual foot traffic.
  • People you don't recognize walking your block with no seemingly specific direction or purpose.
  • Parked, occupied vehicles at unusual hours.
  • Abandoned vehicles.
  • Business transactions conducted from vehicles.
  • Unfamiliar people peering into parked vehicles.
  • Person removing vehicle accessories.
 
Be alert and observant wherever you are and learn to recognize signs of criminal behavior. Report all crime to the HBPD even if it is only an attempt. Crime cannot be controlled or prevented if it is not reported. By reporting crimes and suspicious activities you can protect yourself and others.     
 
If you are in another city in the South Bay, these are their direct dial phone numbers to their PD/FD dispatch. 
 
El Segundo Dispatch 310-524-2760

Manhattan Beach Dispatch 310-545-4566

Palos Verdes Dispatch 310-378-5211

Redondo Beach Dispatch 310- 379-5411

Prepare. Plan. Stay Informed             

 

 

A strong neighborhood is the fundamental building block to a strong community.

We believe collaboration is critical to your survival, regardless of what the emergency is. Of course, there is no predicting the future. However, there is one simple thing you can do - all on your own - to eliminate at least one unknown. Get to know your neighbors.

MAP YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
READY THE RESIDENT
    
LA County now has a campaign website and video for MYN!

 Map Your Neighborhood Logo

IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING A MAJOR DISASTER AT HOME...

1. TAKE CARE OF YOUR LOVED ONES.
2. PROTECT YOUR HEAD, FEET AND HANDS.
3. CHECK THE GAS AT YOUR HOME.
4. SHUT OFF WATER AT THE HOUSE... 

If you have had the MYN training but have not yet trained your block and would like some assistance just let me know.  I will be happy to assist you.

 
View the MYN PowerPoint Presentation

"Map Your Neighborhood" (MYN) is a program designed to help neighborhoods prepare for disasters.  It is a program that HBNW has adopted and highly encourages Block Captains to attend a class and implement the program on their street.
 
MYN will help you to: 
  • Learn the "9 Steps to Take Immediately Following a Disaster" to secure your home and to protect your neighborhood. It is hard to think clearly following disaster and these steps will help you to quickly and safely take actions that can minimize damage and protect lives.
  • Identify the Skills and Equipment each neighbor has that would be useful in an effective disaster response. Knowing which neighbors have supplies and skills helps your disaster response be timely, and allows everyone to contribute to the response in a meaningful way.    
  • Create a Neighborhood Map identifying the locations of natural gas for quick response if needed.
  • Create a Contact List that helps identify those with specific needs such as elderly, disabled, or children who may be home alone during certain hours of the day.
  • Work together as a team to evaluate your neighborhood during the first hour following a disaster and take the necessary actions.      

Work together as a team to evaluate your neighborhood during the first hour following a disaster and take the necessary actions.

Have you changed your contact information?  
A number of telephone calls and emails did not go through because people either changed their number or email or entered the number or email incorrectly. Anyone that has changed their telephone number or email should go to the cities web page (www.hermosabch.org) and re-enter their information. Everyone entered into the Code Red system should have received a telephone call, text message, and an email about the tsunami advisory. If you did not get all three, some of the information may need to be updated.
