The Emergency Preparedness Committee is charged with making recommendations to the City Council to help ensure that the City of Rancho Palos Verdes develops and maintains a high state of readiness to respond to emergencies and disasters. Committee members advise the City Council on ways to develop and improve programs to communicate with and educate residents about the importance of emergency preparedness. Committee members are called upon to participate in community outreach events to encourage residents to become prepared and to participate in local volunteer disaster response organizations.  Committee members are also encouraged to become trained and registered as Disaster Service Workers, and/or receive other disaster-related training and certifications.  The Committee meets on a monthly basis, typically the 3rd Thursday of the month, at 7:00 P.M. in the Community Room at City Hall. However, due to current Covid-19 restrictions the Committee has been meeting virtually using the Zoom platform.
