A Town Hall meeting was called together by Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez and County Supervisor Kathryn Barger to let residents know about what efforts the city and county are making to reduce the possibility of mud slides in the burn areas. There were Representatives from the LAFD, LACo, LAPD and even animal services. The meeting went from mild to angry to mild as citizens voiced their opinions and wanted answers to what the agencies were going to and when.
There were many booths with literature and during the meeting, information was presented on a video display. One of the most important slides was the one showing how to log on to “NOTIFY LA” which is the mass notification system the city uses to let people know when they are in a dangerous area or situation.
