To promote local emergency planning during National Preparedness Month, L.A. Controller Ron Galperin released a new online resource map of emergency services and programs funded by the City of Los Angeles that will help families and communities prepare for unexpected natural disasters. “Get Ready L.A.” gives a rundown of the City’s emergency prep resources and maps the locations of L.A.’s fire stations, police stations and other important civic buildings that Angelenos can access before and after a disaster. 

Get Ready L.A. is part of Controller Galperin’s ongoing effort to use data, technology and innovation to promote government transparency, and connect the public with resources and services offered by the City of Los Angeles. On the resource map, users can also learn more about the number of City employees hired to oversee or assist with emergency operations and the amount of public dollars used to fund these resources annually.
