Ladera Emergency Preparedness (LEP) is an organization that coordinates with the Woodside Fire Protection District (WFPD) to prepare Ladera for a major emergency, most likely an earthquake. The main component of LEP is to organize Ladera to be as self sufficient as possible during a major earthquake . This means educating Laderans on how to personally prepare themselves and providing an organization to ensure we can take care of our own emergency needs until adequate emergency services arrive in the area (1-2 days).
The LEP has an operations committee, a Division and Deputy Division Supervisor (Ladera is Division 10 in the WFPD), and 27 Block Captains.The block captain's primary responsibility in an emergency is to assesst he needs of their block and communicate these to the division command center. Ladera's Division Supervisor and Deputy Division Supervisor are responsible for setting up a command post and temporary medical clinic at Ladera Rec. The command post will be used to relay information to WFPD and emergency services and help direct Laderas own resources
