Description from the County of Los Angeles:
The Emergency Survival Program (ESP) is a large-scale community education outreach program. The County of Los Angeles provides leadership for a 15 county ESP Coordinating Council made up of emergency managers from Contra Costa, Imperial, Inyo, Kern, Los Angeles, Marin, Mono, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, and Ventura counties; various cities; the California Emergency Management Agency; Southern California Edison; the Southern California Earthquake Center; and the American Red Cross.
The Emergency Survival Program prides itself on being a trusted communicator of standardized, coordinated messaging. The ESP Coordinating Council develops publications and materials to address preparedness for all-hazards. Through an annual campaign that focuses on specific and incremental steps to increase the community’s readiness, ESP aims to promote self-sufficiency and instill a sense of empowerment in the event of an emergency or larger-scale disaster throughout the state of California.
In cooperation with our partners, Los Angeles County has assembled a collection of tips and guides aimed at emergency preparedness. The Emergency Survival Program (ESP) is an awareness campaign designed to increase emergency preparedness at home, in the community, at work and at school.
