The City of Malibu’s new Emergency Survival Guide is printed and is now available for Malibu residents and businesses at no cost.
The City is dedicated to achieving community-wide preparedness for wildfires, earthquakes, floods or any other disaster that may come, and the guide is an excellent tool to help community members prepare themselves and their families. Fire season is already here, and wildfires will not wait for the pandemic to pass. It is up to everyone in the community to do everything possible to be prepared, and this survival guide is a great place to start.
The new guidebook is based on Los Angeles County’s Ready Set Go emergency preparedness guide, and customized just for Malibu’s particular geography, hazards and community characteristics. This comprehensive guide includes information about creating a family emergency plan, preparing emergency food and supplies, what to do when disaster strikes, basic first aid, important phone numbers and information about hazards that are specific to Malibu.
City Hall is open to the public by appointment only in order to ensure the safety of the public and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, so neighborhood and community groups can make an appointment to pick up the guides in bulk and distribute them to their membership or neighborhood.
To make an appointment to pick up copies, contact Sarah Kaplan, Public Safety Specialist, at email@example.com or 310-456-2489, ext. 368. To download an electronic version of the guide or to print it at home, visit www.Malibucity.org/SurvivalGuide.
