SOUTH CARTHAY BOARD SIGNS MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING PDF Print E-mail
ACS is pleased to extend its existing patrol coverage of Carthay Circle to include South Carthay with the hopes that with both neighborhoods combined there will be enough subscribers to maintain the maximum amount of patrol. As with our agreement with Carthay Circle, should Carthay Square wish to be added to the patrol beat, ACS will expand the patrol coverage to include them as well. 
ACS will contract with each household directly for the dedicated patrol services, and collect the fees in the amount of $40/month from each subscriber.  The South Carthay Neighborhood Association is not a party to such contracts and subscription is voluntary. Per our agreement with ACS, for (60) days starting January 2015 (upon South Carthay Board approval), ACS will provide at no cost to us an armed security officer in our neighborhood (6) hours/day, (7) days a week. The armed security officer will drive by each home that subscribes several times a day.
During this period, ACS will mail this letter( in addition, we will mail South Carthay’s letter of endorsement) to every home in South Carthay and solicit signups. 
If by the end of the 60-day period 90 homes from Carthay Circle, South Carthay and Carthay Square sign up for the patrol service, ACS will increase the service to (8) hours for another (30) days. When (120) homes subscribe to the patrol service, ACS will increase coverage to (10) hours a day. 
If fewer than (90) homes sign up for the patrol service, the number of hours ACS will patrol will be reduced. However, the monthly price will not change.
Final patrol hours will be determined using this as a formula:
For every (16.66) subscribers ACS will provide (1) hour of patrol. 
(133.33) subscribers= (8) hours
(266.66) subscribers= (16) hours
(400) subscribers= (24) hours
ACS has agreed to provide the following as part of the dedicated patrol services:
1. ACS patrol driver will respond to calls from subscribers in case of emergency or any other concern and will inspect the residence and premises if so authorized by the subscriber. ACS will call the proper authorities in case of emergency or criminal activities in the area.
2. ACS will provide vacation check and patrol car escort services to subscribers if requested to do so by the subscriber.
3. ACS will assist in minor medical emergencies such as helping to lift a patient into a wheel chair or out of a bathtub.
4. ACS will assist in traffic control as necessary.   
5. The drivers will be First Aid and CPR trained.
In addition to the dedicated patrol services, an optional competitively priced alarm monitoring service is available from ACS.    
Offer for Residents that Switch Alarm Monitoring Service to ACS:
Existing alarm systems can be reprogrammed to communicate to the ACS Central Station. For South Carthay residents that have an existing alarm system and elect to switch their alarm monitoring services to ACS, ACS will offer alarm monitoring services for a discounted rate of $28.00 per month, excluding extended service agreements. Furthermore, in the event a resident has an agreement with an alarm monitoring company that is lower than $28/month, ACS will match the existing fee agreement.
Offer for Residents that do not currently have an Alarm System:  During the 90-day security patrol service trial period, ACS will provide patrol service subscribers with the following offer:
1. Free installation of a new alarm system.  ACS will offer a basic system to subscribers with a monitoring agreement at a cost of $32/month (in addition to the $40.00/month for the patrol service). The system will include up to 8 door/window contacts, 1 motion detector, 1 keyfob and a control panel/key pad.
2. Interactive services (smartphone control of the system, text alerts and push notifications through www.alarm.com) are available for an additional $49.00 installation plus an additional monitoring cost of $9.95 per month.
3. 20% discount for additional alarm system upgrades and additional protection.
(Note: With an alarm system, subscribers may also save a significant amount – up to 20% in some cases – on homeowners insurance).

NATURAL GAS SAFETY: STAY SAFE AFTER AN EARTHQUAKE PDF Print E-mail

 

  • DO NOT turn off gas to the meter unless you smell gas, hear the sound of gas escaping or see other signs of a leak--and ONLY if it is safe to do so. If you turn off gas to the meter, leave it off. Do not turn it back on yourself. Interior gas piping and appliances must be inspected for possible damage before service can be safely restored. Call SoCalGas to turn the gas back on, to relight the pilots and service your appliances. Note that certain repairs may have to be performed by your plumber or heating contractor. However, only SoCalGas field employees are allowed to turn on the gas to the meter.
  • For safety, a shut-off valve should be installed at every gas appliance, and may be required by state and/or local codes. If a leak occurs at a specific appliance, the valve will permit you to turn off the gas at the appliance rather than shutting off all gas service at the meter. Some valves require a wrench to turn them.
  • Check your water heater and furnace vents. If the venting system becomes separated during an earthquake or other event, it could leak hazardous fumes into your home. Do not operate your appliance unless it is properly vented.  Signs of an improperly vented appliance may include moisture on the inside of windows or an unusual odor when the appliance is in operation.
  • DO NOT ignite a flame or use any electrical appliances, light switches or other devices that can cause a spark until you're sure there are no gas leaks.
  • Keep informed of the situation through local radio and television.
  • If evacuation is necessary, prepare an evacuation kit, including personal hygiene items, change of clothes, bedding and medication, if possible. Food, shelter and first aid are available at shelters.
  • If it is safe to do so, check on your neighbors, especially elderly and disabled persons.
  • Use the telephone only for family emergency needs or to report unsafe or dangerous conditions.
  • Do not use 911 unless you have a life-threatening emergency.
  • Avoid unnecessary trips. If you must travel during an emergency, dress in warm, loose layers of clothing and sturdy shoes. Advise others of your destination.
  • Use flashlights -- NOT lanterns, matches or candles -- to examine buildings, as flammable gases may be inside.
  • Follow instructions of local authorities regarding the safety of drinking water. If in doubt, boil or purify water before drinking or call public health officials.
  • Avoid "sightseeing" in disaster areas. You may hamper rescue efforts or place yourself in danger. For more info visit: http://www.socalgas.com/safety/preparation.shtml

 

 
EARTHQUAKE PREPAREDNESS PDF Print E-mail

In Los Angeles, our communities are ill-prepared for the destructive potential of the major earthquake that is now overdue.   When it happens, police, fire and medical services will be unavailable to local communities for days following the earthquake and citizens will have to rely on their own supplies, knowledge and organization

The NEIGHBORHOOD TEAM PROGRAM (NTP) coordinates L.A. Fire Dept. Trained CERT personnel working alongside their untrained neighbors into NETs, Neighborhood Emergency Teams. Each program is adaptable to the needs, resources and interests of each community, thereby improving preparedness and response at the neighborhood level. 

Volunteer teams living within a 3-5 block radius, are led by CERT trained personnel from the area and are instructed in personal, family and limited group preparedness techniques. These include search and report, light search and rescue, damage assessment, communications and field level medical treatment.

Participation in your NTP, will help ensure your family's safety, as well as yourself. You will learn the basics of emergency services protocols. You will learn about your neighbor's strengths and weaknesses.  You will be be prepared in advance with supplies and contact information.  To become a member of the South Carthay Neighborhood contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

ALERT L.A. PDF Print E-mail

Los Angeles County has implemented an emergency mass notification system that will be used to contact County residents and businesses via recorded phone messages, text messages or e-mail messages in case of emergency.  The system, called Alert LA County, will be used by the County’s Emergency Operations Center to notify residents and businesses of emergencies or critical situations and provide information regarding necessary actions, such as evacuations.  The system utilizes the telephone companies’ 911 database and is able to contact land-line telephone numbers, whether listed or unlisted.  If the call is picked up by an answering machine, the system will leave a recorded message.  If the number called is busy or does not answer, the system will redial the number in an attempt to deliver the message.  The system is also TTY/TDD compatible.

Because the Alert LA County system uses the 911 database, only land-line numbers are automatically included in the system.  If you have a cellular or Voice over IP number and would like to be notified on that device, or if you would like an e-mail notification, you must register those telephone numbers and/or e-mail address.

Because the Alert LA County system uses geomaping, each telephone number and/or e-mail address can only be associated with one street address in the system.

Each telephone number and e-mail address registered will be contacted only when the street address it is associated with is impacted by a disaster or emergency.

Here is the link to the Los Angeles County website needed to register.

ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE PDF Print E-mail

If your car breaks down on the freeway and there is no Call Box in sight, you can use your cellphone to get non-emergency roadside assistance quickly and easily by calling 3-9-9.  You can also use this to report obstacles or hazards in the road.

Calls to 3-9-9 are connected to Call Box operators who can dispatch Metro Freeway Service Patrol (FSP) tow trucks to your location.  If you are covered by AAA, the dispatcher can patch your call straight through to AAA.  FSP help is free of charge, and is funded by an additional $1 on every Vehicle Licenses Fee in the State of California.

In emergencies, you should still always call 9-1-1.
