Getting Disaster Ready
In a disaster you are your immediate source of help. Outside help may or may not be available for hours or days. Your best insurance plan is to be prepared. Is your home ready? Do your family members know the plan?
Rolling Hills Estates is not immune to the devastating effects of earthquakes, fires and landslides. While the geology of the Palos Verdes Peninsula may make it less likely to sustain catastrophic damage from a major earthquake compared to the Los Angeles basin, gas, water, electric, and communication utilities are supplied from sources that are in or pass through the greater Los Angeles region.
Following a disaster, the fire, police, and medical first responders will give priority to the most heavily damaged areas. Your home may sustain major or minor damage, but you may have NO UTILITIES for days. Are you and your home ready?
