Disaster Preparedness Committee
The Encino Chamber of Commerce along with the offices of Los Angeles City Councilmembers Paul Koretz and Bob Blumenfield, Los Angeles Fire Department, Los Angeles Police Department – West Valley Division, Encino Community Center, Encino Neighborhood Council, Providence Tarzana Medical Center, West Valley Medical Center and other members of the Encino Chamber and community have taken the lead to prepare our community for the next big disaster/emergency (be it fire, flood, earthquake, wind storm, etc.). We ask that you embrace the personal responsibility to be prepared; to get training in first aid and emergency skills; and to volunteer to support local emergency responders, disaster relief efforts, and increase community safety.
Since this is a community effort, we encourage anyone who is interested in being part of the process to please join us on the third Thursday of every month at the Encino Chamber office located at 4933 Balboa Boulevard from noon to 1:00 p.m.
Education provides the framework for our future, so it is a vital part of the Chamber’s agenda. The Chamber Education Committee works closely with the schools in Local District Northwest of the Los Angeles Unified School District as well as private schools, colleges, and universities. Each spring the Chamber sponsors the Teacher of the Year Awards to recognize outstanding performance in the classroom. The Education Committee meets on the fourth Thursday of each month at 1:00 pm at the Chamber Office (for the months that school is not in session such as the summer months, November & December our committee is dark). For more information, please contact Leon Woods of Grandpoint Bank at (818)501-2265.
