Bay Area

MILPITAS, Calif. (KRON) — In an effort to equip residents with helpful information ahead of an emergency or natural disaster — starting Monday, Assemblymember Kansen Chu is hosting a series of free online emergency preparedness training in multiple languages. 

“Being prepared is the key to protecting yourself and your loved ones during an emergency,” said Assemblymember Kansen Chu (D-Milpitas).

“September is National Preparedness Month, and I want to provide the community with the tools to stay safe.”

In partnership with California Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES), Listos California for ALL and The Center on Disability at the Public Health Institute is hosting a one-hour training covering several steps to prepare for emergencies or disasters. 

  • Actions you need to take now 
  • How to protect yourself, your family and community 
  • How to prepare and use emergency kit

The training is funded by Governor Gavin Newsom and the State Legislature appropriated $50 million for the California for All Emergency Preparedness Campaign — a disaster-preparedness initiative housed at the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services. 

The Listos California campaign is a statewide effort to boost disaster preparedness by engaging over one million of the state’s most vulnerable residents by connecting them with the resources needed to be prepared in an event of an emergency. 

The training will be available on Zoom, phone and Facebook Live.
