Preparing for a

terrorist uncident

In light of the recent tragedy in San Bernardino and all of the national news regarding shootings and terrorist events, we have to be prepared for the unexpected, despite the fact that we live on this beautiful island. In the upcoming weeks, I will provide a series of public safety suggestions that you, most likely, will never need. However, the reality is there have been terrorist attacks in our country, terrorists pose a real threat to American lives and we are not exempt from an attack.  

For now, I just want to reassure everyone that even though terrorist attacks on soft targets are possible, we do not have any information or reason to believe that any portion of Catalina Island is a potential target. We have and will always do our best to protect everyone in this community from any type of harm, but we need your help. We ask everyone to report any person(s) or activity that you believe is suspicious. Our crime prevention motto is; “If you see something, say something.”  The number to call for emergencies (from any type of phone) is   “911,” the business line to the Avalon Sheriff’s Station is 310-510-0174 or if you wish to remain anonymous, call LA Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
