2020 NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH - DISASTER NOTIFICATION SYSTEM TEST
As part of the City of Malibu’s 2020 Wildfire Season preparations and National Preparedness Month, the City will conduct a test of the Disaster Notification System on Thursday, September 3, 4:00 PM. The Disaster Notification System is only used in case of large-scale disasters that threaten lives and property, or require evacuations. The City acquired a database with all cell phone accounts with a 90265 address, to increase the number of contacts beyond those who have subscribed to the system.
If you do not receive a test message today, please contact the Public Safety Office so that your contact information can be checked at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 310-456-2489, ext. 489.
With Southern California’s wildfire season already bringing small fires, power outages and heatwaves to Malibu and some of the largest fires in California history to other parts of the state, the City of Malibu invites all community members to join in the City’s many virtual preparedness trainings, meetings and drills throughout September in observance of National Preparedness Month.
Due to public health protocols in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all of Malibu’s National Preparedness Month events will held via video conferencing. All of the events are free and open to all, and are designed to allow for questions and follow-up with participants. In each week of September, the City will focus on a different disaster preparedness theme. The weekly themes are: Malibu’s New Emergency Survival Guide (September 1-5), Disaster Planning (September 6 – 12), Earthquake (September 13 – 19), Wildfire (September 20-27) and Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS) (September 27-30). All events and social media tips will follow these weekly themes. To register, or for more information about any of the events, visit www.MalibuCity.org/2020NationalPreparednessMonthEvents.
