Our top priority at ACS Security is the safety and well-being of our clients and their properties. We are closely monitoring the situation and want to assure you that our monitoring center is fully redundant. This means that even if we lose power in our Bel Air office, we have a backup solution in place to continue monitoring and dispatching our patrol officers.
The following is an excerpt from the LAFD’s full Storm Preparedness Page HERE with some great information.
- Monitor NWS Los Angeles Weather Hazards and Warnings.
- Review official City of Los Angeles emergency updates.
- Stay tuned to local news for official Evacuation Warnings and Evacuation Orders.
- When Thunder Roars, Go Indoors!
- Have sturdy, sensible shoes with nonskid soles for use in a rainstorm. Pack an umbrella, small flashlight and rain coat.
- Do not walk or drive through flowing water. Currents can be deceptive; six inches of moving water can knock you off your feet.
- Limit non-essential travel, and avoid the urge to sightsee.
- Avoid parking vehicles near large trees or in low-lying areas prone to flooding.
- Remain aware of storm-related road closures and transit status.
- Never bypass road barriers or drive through a flooded area where you cannot see the pavement.
- If you become stranded in your car by moving water, stay with your vehicle and move to the hood or roof if water continues to rise.
- If you see someone in peril in deep or moving water, do not attempt a rescue. Call 9-1-1 immediately and be guided by the dispatcher.
- If your tap water source is compromised or questionable due to storm damage, be prepared to drink only from your safe bottled water supply.
- If you lose electric power or see downed electric lines, follow these important instructions to report the problem, restore service and protect your home.
- If using a portable generator, follow safety instructions and keep your generator outside, at least 25′ from any door, window or vent.
Residents should call 3-1-1 or (213) 473- 3231, use an on-line form or the MyLA311 app to report potholes, downed street trees, damaged or inoperative street lights or traffic signals, clogged street drains and any storm-related property damage or issue requiring an inspection or action by City of Los Angeles officials.
