LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Los Angeles Councilwoman Nithya Raman today announced a monthlong campaign to help residents of her district prepare for an emergency.  

``Protecting our community and preserving the beautiful and beloved resources of Council District Four starts with education and engagement,'' Raman said. ``I'm excited to collaborate with constituents to make safety a shared priority.''  

Raman's office noted in its announcement that July will be ``CD4 Emergency Preparedness Month'' and that the diverse terrain of her district -- which includes Griffith Park and the neighborhoods of Silver Lake, Los Feliz, Sherman Oaks, Hollywood, among others -- is particularly prone to climate change danger.  

Throughout July, Raman's office and its partners will engage with residents door-to-door, hold public conversations with city officials and educate on social media in an effort to increase participation in Ready Your L.A. Neighborhood Workshop, boost sign-ups for NotifyLA, set the record straight on misinformation about brush clearance responsibilities and further establish safety protocols for the district.  

People who want to sign up for NotifyLA, the city's emergency notification program, can text READY to 888-777. People interested in attending a workshop can go to
