Shift Happens - Secure Your Place

About 70-80 people were present at our March 2007 board meeting for Mark Benthien's presentation about the latest information of the potential Great Earthquake happening sooner rather than later and how it will affect us in Porter Ranch. You can watch a video online about the future of earthquakes in Porter Ranch.

Mark Benthien is the Director of Communication, Education and Outreach for the Southern California Earthquake Center at the University of Southern California. This center was established in 1991 for the purpose of gathering new information about earthquakes in southern Calif. and to communicate an understanding of this phenomena to the general public in order to increase awareness, reduce economic losses and save lives.

Carol Parks, Emergency Preparedness Coordinator for the City of Los Angeles, presented tips to help us prepare for the "Big One". Read about what to do in an earthquake.

Fire Captain Stacy Gerlich spoke about CERTS (Community Emergency Response Teams) and the effort being made to prepare Porter Ranch. Remeber the CERTS motto is "You Can't Predict...But You Can Prepare"

The Porter Ranch Neighborhood Council is an organization that is officially certified by the City of Los Angeles to increase our influence with City lawmakers and departments to improve our community.

The PRNC came about as a result of Los Angeles City Charter Reform and interested stakeholders in our community. The Board is elected by stakeholders and holds monthly meetings, usually on the first Wednesday of the month. The agenda is emailed to those who subscribe (see the green box in the upper corner), on our website here and posted at 11280 Corbin Avenue, Northridge, CA 91326 on a bulletin board facing Corbin street.

The Board is comprised of volunteers who want to help you make Porter Ranch a better place to live, work and grow. We can't do it for you, but we can do it with you.
