• Mayors from Across the San Gabriel Valley to Join Red Cross in Launching Disaster Preparedness Campaign


    SAN GABRIEL VALLEY – Mayors from across the San Gabriel Valley will join the American Red Cross on Thursday, March 7 in Pasadena in preparing their communities for a catastrophic disaster and launching the PrepareSanGabrielValley campaign. After a major event, emergency responders will be overwhelmed. Through the Prepare San Gabriel Valley campaign-an initiative designed to create more resilient communities that are better equipped to help each other prevent, prepare for and respond to life-threatening disasters-individuals, families, organizations and businesses will learn to become the first responders. The PrepareSanGabrielValley campaign is sponsored by Cathay Bank. Press Conference speakers include:

    • Mayor William Bogaard, City of Pasadena

    • Margaret Vinci, Office of Earthquake Programs Manager, Caltech

    • Dunson Cheng, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO, Cathay Bank

    • Ben Green, CEO, American Red Cross San Gabriel Pomona Valley

    • Liz Giordano, Chair of the PrepareSanGabrielValley Executive Committee

    The exact location of the event is at the San Gabriel Pomona Valley Chapter located at 430 Madeline Drive in Pasadena.

    Disaster can strike suddenly, anywhere and anytime. Yet, only 14% of Californians have made any plans for what to do before, during and after a catastrophic event. And one in every five people have taken absolutely NO action toward disaster preparedness! In view of these startling facts, preparedness is critical in preventing and alleviating the impact of disasters as county services may not reach all persons in the event of a disaster affecting a mass number of individuals. City Officials, businesses, and individuals will be encouraged to participate and support the PrepareSanGabrielValley campaign.
