The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is one of the leaders of a new program called “Build Resilience LA County”. Explained in more detail in the attached PDF, the program is available to neighborhoods throughout Los Angeles County with the help of local city governments. Members of the CCNA emergency preparedness subcommittee have secured this no-cost 5-part class for our neighborhood. The course can be best described as the CERT training program without the hard hats and equipment!
It will be taught by Professor Rachael Long from Loma Linda University; with help from County Public Health Nurse Helen Obih, RN who is in charge of the County Program; and Christine Para from Culver City Fire Department. The course is designed so that we can take the materials from each section and distribute them to those that miss a session and want the material.
The classes will take place on 5 consecutive Monday evenings at 7pm starting on Monday, March 30th, and continuing each Monday evening through the end of April. (March 30, April 6, 13, 20, 27). The classes will be held at Marycrest Manor.
What: Build Resilience LA County 5-part Course

For those of you following the goings-on at the oil fields, this from the Community Health Councils:
The next Community Advisory Panel Meeting (CAP) for the Inglewood Oil Field is this Thursday, January 22nd from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Kenneth Hahn Recreation Area Community Center. The meeting will include a presentation by the Natural Resource Defense Council on one of the organization’s recent reports, “Drilling in California: Who’s at Risk”. The report identifies the number and demographics of people living near oil and gas wells. The report also outlines recommendations for preventing further environmental and public health threats. Please review the attached meeting agenda and last meeting minutes for additional information on the upcoming meeting.
The next General Meeting of the Culver Crest Neighborhood Association will be on January 15, 2014, at Marycrest Manor, at 7pm.
The main topic will be elections to the CCNA Board. In early 2014, we altered the By-Laws of the CCNA to stagger the terms. Board members are elected to two-year terms, with 5 expiring one year and 4 the following. This time around there are 5 seats open for re-election.
Nominations may be made up until the election portion of the meeting. Any nominations sent in prior to the morning of the 15th will have their names printed on the ballot. Nominations made during the meeting will be write-ins. Please send any nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org
