Emergency Survival Program - Additional
The ESP Focus Sheets for the current year and other ESP publications can be found here.
The Emergency Survival Program (ESP) is a large-scale community education outreach program. The County of Los Angeles provides the leadership for a 15-county ESP Coordinating Council, made up of emergency managers from Contra Costa, Imperial, Inyo, Kern, Los Angeles, Marin, Mono, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, and Ventura counties; various cities; the California Emergency Management Agency; Southern California Edison; the Southern California Earthquake Center; and the American Red Cross.
The Emergency Survival Program prides itself on being a trusted communicator of standardized, coordinated messaging. The ESP Coordinating Council develops publications and materials to address preparedness for all-hazards. Through an annual campaign that focuses on specific and incremental steps to increase the community's readiness, ESP aims to promote self-sufficiency and instill a sense of empowerment in the event of an emergency or large-scale disaster throughout the state of California.
By taking simple actions you can help prepare your neighborhood, family and community to be self-sufficient. You are encouraged to download the ESP materials on this site. For additional information about the Emergency Survival Program, please e-mail LACO-OEM@ceooem.lacounty.gov.

so the authors can see how widely the materials have spread and what your needs are.
We have collected ESP Focus Sheets from prior years. They are organized by subject, and contain the most recent versions. The date of the Focus Sheet is included in the file name, so if changes or updates are made, you will be current. (Some of the Focus Sheets are also available in Family Steps to Survival).
