T-CEP Annual Volunteer Awards Brunch

---------------------------------------------------------------------------


Mermaid owner and artist, Bill Buerge, volunteers as designer using photos of the locals, humor, and colorful graphics to break through the wall of fear, denial and procrastination surrounding the subject of emergency preparedness.

Local residents and Los Angeles

County personnel from fire, sheriff,

and other departments met

for two years to co-create

a survival manual

that people would

actually read.

The Mermaid is used as the shooting location, neighbors are the models,

and professional photographers volunteer their services.

  Don’t Panic...


Prepare!
