Northridge Earthquake Anniversary is a Reminder to be Prepared for 'The Big One'
 
Friends, on the 20th anniversary of the Northridge Earthquake, Councilmember Huizar wants to remind you to please take a moment to review these earthquake safety tips to keep you and your loved-ones safe during a major earthquake:
 
Before an earthquake - be prepared:
 
•Know the earthquake plans for all buildings you occupy regularly.
•Practice your earthquake procedure - drop, cover, and hold. Pick the safest place to do so in each room in your home, work, and/or school.
•Make sure your home is securely anchored to its foundation.
•Create and maintain an emergency supplies kit and keep in a convenient location.
 
During an earthquake:
 
•If you are indoors, duck and cover, preferably under a sturdy table or desk, holding onto a leg in case it moves. Avoid doorways, as they are no stronger than any other part of the building structure and swinging doors may cause injury. Do not run outside - you risk being hit by falling debris.
•If you are outside, find a clear space, drop, and remain there until it stops. Move away from buildings, power lines, trees, and streetlights.
•If you are in a car, pull over and remain in your car. Getting out will put you at risk of being hit by another car.
 
After an earthquake:
 
•Expect and prepare for potential aftershocks, landslides, or, less frequently, a tsunami. Aftershocks can occur minutes, days, weeks, and even months after. Drop, cover, and hold.
•Check yourself for injuries before assisting others.
•Look for and extinguish small fires, the most common hazard after an earthquake.

Eagle Rock Named Second Hottest Neighborhood in the US in 2014!
 
Eagle Rock has been named America's second "Hottest" Neighborhood for 2014 by real estate website Redfin! This comes just a year after Highland Park was ranked first on the same list. We've always known Northeast LA is the place to be -- now it seems the country does too! This recognition is well-deserved, and is due in no small part to the culture, businesses, organizations, and residents of Eagle Rock. Let's keep up the good work!
