The Chamber has spent the last several years educating the business community on disaster preparedness. We have a Disaster Preparedness Committee that meets monthly and works closely with the Chamber and community organizations to coordinate an action plan, so that in the event of an emergency the community will be better prepared. The Chamber also organizes earthquake and emergency drills, symposiums, C.P.R. classes, C.E.R.T. training classes all in support of our emergency preparedness program. What we do now before the Earthquake, will determine our lives after the Earthquake
Are you prepared? Is your family prepared? Is your business prepared?
The BIG ONE is just around the corner! The Encino Chamber has information for you, your family and employees about how to prepare for earthquake.
