LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Ahead of Thursday’s annual statewide earthquake drill, city officials today urged Angelenos to add “OK” and “HELP” signs to their readiness kits. Residents should put the signs in their windows after any type of large- scale disaster to help first-responders efficient and treat those with the most serious injuries first.

The signs, which include basic instructions for what to do after an earthquake, were produced jointly by the city in a coalition with the American Red Cross and the United States Geological Survey.

City Councilman Mitchell Englander, chair of the council’s Public Safety Committee, said the coalition plans to distribute 50,000 copies of the OK/Help signs.
