La Cañada Flintridge, CA – The La Cañada Flintridge City Council voted Tuesday, Oct. 17, to fund an agreement between the City and Ring.com, a video doorbell camera resource. The City is in the process of finalizing the agreement with Ring.com; details are forthcoming.

Residents can see, hear and speak to visitors through their smartphones, tablets or desktop computers.

With residential burglaries on an uptick throughout southern California, the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station recommends leveraging modern communication resources to enhance the security of local homes.

“Technology is helping us to work smarter and better than the burglars,” says Captain Christopher Blasnek.

Through the City’s Contract Services Agreement incentive program, the City will offer a $50 per household subsidy; Ring.com will match the $50 subsidy for a total rebate of $100, in addition to offering further discounts to residents.

La Cañada Flintridge Participates in Great ShakeOut

posted Oct 18, 2017, 9:12 PM by Arabo Parseghian

La Cañada Flintridge, CA – On Thursday, October 19, the City of La Cañada Flintridge will observe the Great ShakeOut, an earthquake drill that will include the participation of thousands of schools, state, and local governments.

At 10:19 AM on Thursday, October 19, City Hall will take a 20-minute pause from its usual business to practice earthquake preparedness measures that will better familiarize staff with the knowledge, resources and response efforts to be safe in the event of an earthquake.

 As a part of the drill, staff will engage in several preparedness activities, including “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” as well as a complete evacuation. Additionally, a number of staff members have been assigned roles to carry out during the drill that would carry over and in a real emergency.

In preparation for Thursday’s drill, Management Analyst Christina Nguyen found the opportunity to evaluate the City’s emergency plans. She hopes staff participation in the Great ShakeOut will raise awareness of effective earthquake safety procedures contributing to the community’s resilience in the face of a natural disaster.

“As part of this drill, we are encouraging staff to refamiliarize themselves on their responsiveness and role in an emergency,” said Nguyen. “By the end of the day, City staff will be better prepared to respond to an emergency whether they’re at work or at home.”

The City plans to hold regular drills to refine its methods and raise awareness of physical and environmental hazards. Nguyen plans to update evacuation maps and forms in the coming months and as the City relocates to a new facility.

“By practicing what to do ahead of time, we are more likely to respond instinctively and safely during an emergency,” said Mark Alexander, City Manager. “We don’t know when a natural disaster will happen, but with these tools and knowledge in place, we will be better prepared.”

To learn how to prepare for earthquakes and other natural disasters please visit http://www.lcf.ca.gov/public-safety/emergency-preparedness.

The City of La Cañada Flintridge also encourages all residents to sign up for Alert LCF, the City's emergency notification system.  This will allow the City to contact individuals by phone, text message, or email in emergencies or disasters.
