The Los Angeles County Fire Department, in cooperation with several public service agencies, county departments, and the Topanga Community, will be hosting Topanga Evacuation Exercise 2010.

This week-long event will feature Topanga Safety Week (April 26 through April 30, 2010), and will culminate with a canyon-wide evacuation exercise which will take place on Saturday, May 1, 2010 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.

We encourage all Topanga residents to participate in both the Safety Week and the Evacuation Exercise.  More details will be forthcoming.  Keep checking back for more details.  All materials pertaining to the Safety Week and the Exercise will be posted on the Topanga Exercise 2010 page of this website.  Additionally, all Topanga residents will receive a packet in the mail.  We anticipate that you should receive this mailing around April 19.

February 10, 2010 Comments off

Your Topanga Disaster Survival Guide contains a listing of all the Community Safety Areas (CSAs) and Neighborhood Survival Areas (NSAs); however, the listings in the book are the CSAs and NSAs that were in effect at publication time.  The Los Angeles County Fire Department reviews this listing annually to make any appropriate changes.

Please visit the CSAs/NSAs page (tab located above) periodically to view the most current list of viable CSAs and NSAs, and make any necessary corrections to your copies of the Survival Guide.

Thank you.
