Earthquake 3/28/2014

*UPDATE: La Habra, California* #LAquake: Firefighters from all 106
neighborhood fire stations promptly move to a designated safe area and
then initiate a "windshield survey" of their District. In this manner,
over 470 square miles in the greater Los Angeles area can be assessed in
a matter of minutes. The Department's six helicopters and five fire
boats assist the appraisal. Firefighters rapidly assess:

• Transportation infrastructure (freeway over pass, rail lines, and
airports).
• Large places of assemblage (stadiums, schools and universities,
shopping malls).
• Critical facilities (hospitals, refineries, dams, power lines).
• High density residential (apartments, condominiums).

Once this process is complete, findings are immediately report back to
Commanders allowing areas of concern to be quickly addressed.

No significant damage has been reported at this time. - Erik Scott###
