LA has 4 million residents, in comparison the City has approximately 10,000 police, and less than 5,000 LA Fire firefighters. Your neighbor may be the first responder in that critical first hour to support you immediately after a disaster.

Creating the RYLAN plan with residents of an individual building can help the residents get to know each other better, learn the unique skills that each neighbor has, and how they can support each other.
