Team Overview

The problem that most communities in Los Angeles face is lack of cohesion and organization. To promote community resilience, emergency managers must create sustainable information-sharing networks in order to successfully disseminate emergency public health information and guidance. Community organizations and leaders are equipped to build the capacity of emergency information-sharing networks to include at-risk audiences and enhance the overall resiliency of communities. By leveraging these pre-established networks, the project can expand access to community members and bridge the cultural, language, and information gaps involved in transmitting emergency messages to at-risk populations. The project will primarily provide exploratory and baseline assessment results.
