One of the city’s primary responsibilities to its citizens is to provide for the maximum protection of life and property from both natural and man-made hazards and disasters. In July of 2008, the city council unanimously approved Resolution No. 2008-61 for the creation of a Emergency Preparedness Committee with this goal in mind. This new city advisory board, which consists of 7 resident volunteers appointed by the city council, has been charged with the mission to advise and make recommendations to the City Council on matters pertaining to emergency preparedness to help ensure that the City of Rancho Palos Verdes develops and maintains a high state of readiness to respond to a wide variety of emergencies and disasters."
The Emergency Preparedness Committee holds evening meetings as required, generally on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. in the Community Room at City Hall.
If you have questions, or would like the Emergency Preparedness Committee to make an emergency preparedness presentation to your group or organization, please email the Emergency Preparedness Committee.
