The time to prepare for the next emergency is now! The City of Los Angeles offers an innovative program called Ready Your LA Neighborhood (RYLAN) that brings emergency managers to your neighborhood to help you create a plan for any emergency.
RYLAN gives you the steps to take immediately after a disaster to help keep you and your family safe. It provides the tools to prepare and organize your neighborhood to respond together in that first hour after a disaster to reduce injuries, protect your property and the environment, and most importantly, to save lives.
