About

The Los Feliz Neighborhood Council “Emergency Radio Network" goes "on the air" each week to test our emergency communications. We'll be "on station" every Monday at 7:00 PM on the Family Radio Service* (FRS) channel 15 listening for quick radio checks.

During an emergency, cellular and land-line phones will be overwhelmed, so inexpensive ($25) FRS radios are an excellent addition to your home emergency arsenal, and they’re easily available online. Small, no-license required, good for 2-miles or more, they'll connect neighbor to neighbor in an emergency.

We’d be happy to help get you started, and in the meantime, if you have any questions, contact mike.hain@losfeliznc.org, Chair of our Public Health and Safety Committee.

*FRS radios are low-power, inexpensive units designed for emergency use in the event cell service goes down or is being over-used. A reminder, this net will most likely not be in use in the event of a major disaster, so learn to use the FRS radios as another tool to talk to your neighbors.

Let’s try some radio check-ins. Not all at once. But give it a try. Give your name and street — I’m David on Lyric Avenue. Plain English, please.

A couple of reminders:

Los Angeles Fire Department CERT Program (Community Emergency Response Team) training is offered free of charge and is really recommended to assist your neighbors and yourselves in times of major emergency. CERT-Hollywood Basic Training starts January 10th (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/lafd-cert-hollywood-tickets-37460780202).

Please participate in the LA “Map your Neighborhood” project which again connects neighbors with neighbors in an emergency. More info on “Map Your Neighborhood” is available.
