Beverly Hills, CA (March 14, 2023) – The City of Beverly Hills’ ‘Just In Case BH’ program has worked closely with the Beverly Hills Fire Department and the Beverly Hills Police Department to assemble the City’s first Emergency Supply Box that will be installed at La Cienega Park. The public will be invited to view the newly installed box at a family-friendly event on Sunday, March 26 from 2 p.m.to 4 p.m. near the La Cienega Community Center.
“Our incredible Fire and Police Departments along with our ‘Just in Case BH’ volunteers have truly made our community their top priority when it comes to ensuring everyone gets access to life saving medical supplies,” said Beverly Hills Mayor Lili Bosse. “Emergency Supply Boxes such as these will give our residents and businesses another valuable resource they can get to quickly in an emergency.”
The Emergency Supply Box will consist of basic first aid items that can be accessed and utilized in the event of a large-scale emergency when community members nearby are in need of supplies.
“In addition to our City’s emergency supplies we have stocked in key locations, it’s important we also have additional medical supplies available throughout the City,” said Beverly Hills Fire Chief Greg Barton. “We plan to install more of these supply boxes in each of the nine ‘Just In Case BH’ zones in the coming months.”
At the event, the community will be able to meet both Beverly Hills Fire Chief Greg Barton and Beverly Hills Police Chief Mark Stainbrook, enjoy food trucks and take part in exercises and classes surrounding CPR, Stop the Bleed and First Aid.
