Spark of Love 2011 In an effort to provide for children and teens who otherwise might not experience the joy of the holiday season, the City of El Segundo Fire Department participates in the Spark of Love Program.
The community is encouraged to support this holiday program by contributing toys and non-perishable foods to the El Segundo Fire Department, Fire Station No. 1 at 314 Main Street, during the period of November 21st - December 15th, 2011.
The "Spark of Love" holiday season runs through December 16, 2010. The El Segundo Fire Department is collecting donations of unwrapped toys or food items that will go to children and families who need a helping hand.
The Hazard Mitigation Plan is required under the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. Under Section 322 of the Stafford Act, local government agencies requesting future grant funding for mitigation projects must complete a comprehensive plan and have it approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to be eligible for disaster relief and hazard mitigation funding. The Hazard Mitigation Plan will outline the City’s vulnerabilities; analyze future development trends; develop hazard mitigation strategies in building construction; identify critical facilities and infrastructure contained within the City limits; and identify other risk factors.
We are conducting a survey to learn more about your views and concerns on the issue of hazards facing the City of El Segundo. Local hazard mitigation activities and planning efforts can reduce the effects of hazards, protect people and property, and improve our preparation for, response to, and recovery from disasters. El Segundo is in the process of preparing a Hazard Mitigation Plan which is both a requirement of federal law and a prerequisite to the City being eligible for future local disaster relief funding in the event it should become necessary. Please help us to identify hazards of concern to you by completing this brief questionnaire. Your input is very important to us and will be useful in development of a Hazard Mitigation Plan tailored to our community¹s unique requirements. Individual survey responses will be held confidential.
