We never know when a natural disaster will strike, but when it does, it pays to be ready. The City of Torrance has top-notch public safety employees and a dedicated group of volunteers that are ready to respond. Unfortunately, we could be better prepared. Items such as generators at the Area Disaster Centers and radios to enhance our communications capabilities are needed.
Right now, the City's 2015-2016 budget is being put together and a proposal has been made to include funding for these items that will help keep us safe when disaster strikes. Because chances for funding like this are so rare, we need to take action immediately and not let this opportunity pass us by. Please sign the petition and forward the link to your friends and neighbors who live in Torrance. The more people who sign it, the higher the chances we'll have a "Safer Torrance"!
