As part of ongoing efforts to enhance community-wide disaster preparedness, the City is offering a course on Disaster Preparedness for Older Adults and People with Disabilities on Saturday, September 14, 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM and Thursday, September 26, 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM at City Hall. The class is a part of the City’s month-long programs during September for National Preparedness Month.

“Malibu has a whole-community approach to emergency preparedness,” said Mayor Jefferson “Zuma Jay” Wagner. “Seniors and people who aren’t independently mobile are an important part of our community and are particularly vulnerable during a disaster. We have to ensure that they and their families are prepared, and that our emergency planning takes them into account.”

Older adults and people with disabilities and mobility issues can learn how to prepare for wildfires, earthquakes or other disasters. Will you be able to safely and quickly evacuate during a disaster if you rely on a wheelchair, oxygen or other medical devices, or do not drive?

Participants aged 55 or older who complete the class will receive a free emergency preparedness kit. ID is required.

To register, visit For more information, call Stephanie Berger, Public Safety Specialist, at 310-456-2489 ext. 368 or email
