How to receive emergency updates from T-CEP and more than 35 other selected accounts
by Scott Ferguson
Set up your Twitter preferences to receive push notifications from T-CEP on your mobile device. You'll get real time updates on incidents texted to your phone in seconds. In a fast moving fire emergency, Twitter will be your best place to stay informed because you won't miss any Tweets. Facebook may not display every T-CEP post to you (unless you've enabled the Notifications feature).
TopangaCERT is another local social resource you should have on your mobile devices. CERT is more active on reporting traffic issues, although T-CEP will often report major traffic problems that affect a broad area.
Keep in mind we are all volunteers, so never rely solely on T-CEP for emergency information. We do our best to be there when the bad stuff happens but it's not our full-time gig, sooo...no guarantees expressed or implied, know what I mean? Always have multiple ways to get information to cover your disaster bases. Take the time to prepare a Family Emergency Plan and evacuation plan, and practice your plans when all is quiet.

999 FOR KIDS
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s – Malibu/Lost Hills Station is asking for your support for this very worthy cause.
Thousands of children in Los Angeles County are under the care of or assisted by the Department of Children and Family Services because they have been abused, neglected or have severe mental and physical disabilities that require resources far beyond their families’ capabilities. County funding is not always sufficient to provide the special equipment and services that these children need to enhance their lives. Many of the children must use wheelchairs or cannot interact and communicate without assistance.
