The Prepared Peninsula Expo is a great opportunity to learn from experts in emergency readiness about how to prepare your family and safeguard your home for the event of an earthquake, wildfire or other disaster. This year’s speakers included: Frank Forman, Battalion Chief with the Los Angeles County Fire Department; James Powers, Captain of the Lomita Sheriff’s Station; and Soraya Sutherlin, the Regional Emergency Communications Manager for Alert SouthBay. Residents are encouraged to view this year’s EXPO to learn how to best prepare themselves and their family as the COVID-19 pandemic underscores the need to always be ready for an emergency.
