Winter Community Meeting

Located in a favored pub/eatery, Red Leprechaun Wed. Jan 23rd from 7pm-8:30pm. Where is Red Leprechaun? Corner of Anaheim and Termino, 4000 E. Anaheim. Thank you Tracy!

  • Josh from LB Public Library – what’s new….some terrific and smart programs
  • Jake from City CERT program – how neighborhoods prepare for disaster.

Anticipating that some residents may want to host a block party to kick off their disaster planning – city applications will be on hand. We have reached out to our residents and our non-profits/faith based communities to attend. We need to develop not only awareness but reliance on each other.

“…..findings show that ambulances and firetrucks and government aid are not the principal ways most people survive during — and recover after — a disaster. His data suggest that while official help is useful — in clearing the water and getting the power back on in a place such as New Orleans after Katrina, for example — government interventions cannot bring neighborhoods back, and most emergency responders take far too long to get to the scene of a disaster to save many lives. Rather, it is the personal ties among members of a community that determine survival during a disaster, and recovery in its aftermath.”

Let’s take to the streets! 10th Street!

RPNA with Port of Long Beach and Heart of Ida, and our very own CD2 and CD4! Along with great groups: Jennifer Kumiyana, disability advocate, East Division PD, LB Transit, Gray Panthers, Hearing Loss Association, Willard Neighborhood Group, AOC7, and WalkLB. We will be out walking the sidewalks at 10th and Orizaba. We want to recognize the positive effects of the new flashing lights at the crosswalk, and recognize our school crossing guard. We’ll be asking those passing by “What makes you feel safe” while handing out personal alarms, reflective wrist bands, vests and flashlights.  Live nearby – turn your front porch light on in support! It’s a street action!
