Pandemics, Wildfires, Earthquakes, Floods – Five Steps
Listos California is a grassroots campaign anchored at the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal-OES) to build a culture of disaster preparedness across the state. Research commissioned by Listos California reveals that 88% of Californians are aware of the need to prepare but many don’t because they are scared (66%), feel it’s too expensive (61%) or don’t have time (54%). Speakers will share information on what could be free, easy and life-saving steps to take now for possible future disasters as well as one key step to stay safe in the COVID-19 pandemic. Listos California has been reaching members of California’s Latin, API, African-American and other communities of color credibly and in language. They also recognize and address systemic bias in disaster preparedness. Come learn about their past work and about what’s ahead.
