The city of Palmdale’s neighborhood services department will host a free emergency preparedness presentation for seniors on Thursday, Jan. 22, at 1 p.m. in the Legacy Commons for Active Seniors, 930 E. Ave. Q-9 in Palmdale.

“Being properly prepared for an emergency is important and a must for all residents,” said Crime Prevention Officer Kery German. “This presentation will offer how-to information, educational presentations and materials on how to be properly prepared.

“While each individual has unique needs and situations, everyone can take steps to prepare for an emergency,” said German. “Because we are so close to the San Andreas Fault line, being prepared is very important for our residents.” German said.

“Most people don’t realize that if they’re properly prepared for an earthquake, they are prepared for most natural disasters,” German added. “Wildfires, power outages, storms and the like are just some of the emergencies we may face.”
