Press Release

ONTARIO, CA – Today, Rep. Norma J. Torres (D-Pomona) concluded her Disaster Preparedness week. The week’s events included two successful earthquake preparedness seminars, participating in the Great California Shakeout at Don Lugo High School in Chino, a meeting with local city managers to discuss fire training, and a roundtable with local police and fire chiefs to discuss coordinated preparation and response plans in the case of a disaster.


“I want to thank everyone who participated in this disaster preparedness week, from the constituents who attended our events to the presenters who shared information on available resources,” said Torres. “Throughout the week, I was impressed with the willingness of our local, state, and federal governments to work together to get the word out to our constituents. As we’ve seen in recent natural disasters, collaboration across all levels of government and agencies is key to an effective response.”


Constituents who were not able to attend the events or have questions about available disaster preparation resources should contact the Congresswoman’s Ontario office: 909-481-6474 or visit
