Want to get more involved in local government? Applications to fill two vacancies on the Emergency Preparedness Committee are due this Friday, April 9. These are volunteer, non-paying positions with terms of office ending in June 2024.
The seven-member 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.
