How to Get Disaster Assistance

Following an earthquake or other disaster, it is important to monitor local radio, television and other media resources for information about where to get emergency housing, food, medical attention, and financial assistance.

Assistance to families and individuals will come from a number of organizations. The American Red Cross and Salvation Army are often set up right away to offer immediate medical, food and housing needs.

After the disaster the City of Calabasas offers information and referrals to help people in shelters, and with locations of resources for direct assistance. The City will provide information to residents via:

  • Local Media

  • Channel 3: CTV - The Calabasas Channel

  • KNX 1070 AM or KFWB 980 AM

  • City Website: EMERGENCY INFORMATION

  • City Facilities:
               Agoura Hills / Calabasas Community Center
               Tennis and Swim Center

  • Informational Handouts

In the event of a severe disaster, the federal government is also called in to help individuals and families with temporary housing, counseling, low interest loans and grants, and other types of public assistance. Businesses and schools are also eligible for aid.

This Federal assistance becomes available when the President of the United States declares a "Major Disaster" at the request of the State's governor. When this happens, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) sets up Disaster Application Centers to process applications. FEMA also uses an 800-phone number to register disaster applications as well. The number to call is announced via television, radio, newspapers, and throughout the City's various information networks.
