Natural Disasters in California Are on the Rise, Ensure You and Your Family Are Prepared
Finding the immediate resources during a natural disaster can be vital!
Our district is occasionally impacted by natural disasters that have caused flooding, mudslides, and additional destruction. I'm proud to say our communities have done an amazing job coming together to provide essential resources and to aid those in need, in conjunction with our state and federal partners. Below is a list of links from different cities in the district that contain information about disaster relief, updates and other pertinent information.
Know Your Zone
Know Your Zone maps is an emergency notification program for the Palos Verdes Peninsula cities. This tool is designed to help residents and authorities prepare for urgent situations and evacuations. These maps are a valuable resource for residents to understand their specific evacuation zone and the necessary actions to take in the event of an emergency, ensuring a coordinated and safe response to urgent situations.
Alert South Bay
Alert South Bay is an integrated alert system to keep our area informed about disasters and major emergencies. The Alert South Bay notification system replaces all existing notification systems including NIXLE used by the following cities: El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Palos Verdes Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills Estates*, Rolling Hills, Torrance*, Gardena, Hawthorne and Lomita.
*Residents who have enrolled in TorranceAlerts or to the NIXLE Wire for Rolling Hills Estates do not need to re-register. Your information has been transferred. Existing enrollees are encouraged to log in and verify their information is still accurate.
