City of Los Angeles Emergency Management Department

The City of Los Angeles Emergency Management Department is hosting a free week-long summer program to educate young women in the field of emergency management.

Program Summary: The City of Los Angeles Emergency Management Department (EMD) is excited to announce that we have partnered with the Institute for Diversity and Inclusion (I-DIEM) to facilitate a week-long camp for participants between the ages of 15-25 years old.

HERricane LA is a week-long camp that brings together 45 young women from under-represented communities across Los Angeles and affords them the opportunity to learn from a diverse group of City leaders including our first responders, policymakers, and emergency managers across Departments and culminates in a Functional Exercise on the last day of camp.
