LBFD Participates In Disaster Day At Long Beach Memorial

By Jackawa Jackson | March 27, 2009

On March 24 the Long Beach Fire Department and the Long Beach Fire Ambassadors participated in Disaster Preparedness Day at Long Beach Memorial Hospital.  This event was established in an effort to educated hospital staff members on what to do in a large or small-scale emergency at home or abroad. There was also information provided on basic fire prevention as well as ways to avoid many other emergencies.  The Red Cross, The Long Beach CERT program, Fire and Police departments as well as nearly two dozen other groups, manned various booths throughout the meeting hall.  Hundreds of hospital workers filed past numerous booths in an effort to collect fliers and information. There is talk of extending this all day event to the public in the future.  This event was coordinated by J. C. Arzaga.
