    Yes, I agree. I think it’s great to see communities holding these meetings. Most people see disaster’s play out on TV, and never think it could happen to them. Everyone should take steps to prepare themselves and their families for natural disasters. Weather you live in California and have earthquakes, or live on the coast in the Gulf of Mexico or East coast and have hurricanes, or live in the North East and have snow storms and Ice storms, or live in Tornado Ally and have to deal with tornado’s. No matter where you live there is always the threat of an impending natural disaster. It’s not a matter of “if”, but a matter of “when”. Are you prepared?

    We are privileged to have Dr. David Eisenman as a neighbor!! He is a faculty member of the UCLA Medical Center and is known for his published research studies in Disaster Planning. Here is a brief summary of his works I have found on the internet:
    David Eisenman, MD, MSHS, Director
    •David Eisenman, MD MSHS is an Associate Natural Scientist at RAND and Associate Professor in Residence in the UCLA Division of General Internal Medicine and Health Services Research of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Dr. Eisenman trained in psychiatry and internal medicine and is a board-certified internist. His disaster research has focused on preparedness among health systems, communities, and individuals, vulnerable populations, and behavioral health and trauma. His current research includes Principal Investigator of two disaster studies: “PM-PREP: Peer-Mentored Preparedness for Adults with Developmental Disabilities”(R21, National Institute of Nursing Research) and “Leave Early/Evacuation or Stay and Defend: PTSD and the Public’s Response to Wildfire” (USDA Forest Service). He is Co-Principal Investigator of the CDC funded study, “Building Effective Public Health-CBO/FBO Partnerships for Disaster Readiness”. Recently completed projects include a CDC funded award for Project PREP (Programa Para Responder a Emergencias con Preparación), a community-based, participatory research program to improve preparedness among low-income Latinos, that was tested in a community-based, randomized control trial. Dr. Eisenman has published over a dozen peer-reviewed publications and reports on disaster preparedness, served on committee for the National Academies of Science and is on the Editorial Board of the American Journal of Disaster Medicine.
