Tzu Chi USA + Listos California

Get Ready And Stay Safe

Tzu Chi USA and Listos California are teaming up to ensure California’s most vulnerable residents are prepared for any type of emergency. These include any individuals who may be socially isolated, are above the age of 65, are low-income, have a disability, or have limited English-language skills.

Together, let’s build resilient communities and live a culture of disaster prepared California.

Upcoming Events

End of the Season Family Safety Expo

Tzu Chi USA’s disaster preparedness and family safety expo is designed to boost awareness for simple steps we each can take to be more prepared in the event of an emergency — at home, work, and within your local community. 

Listos Means Ready in Spanish

Listos California serves as a bridge between Spanish-speaking communities and resources for disaster and emergency preparedness. In our partnership, we are proud to extend this same support for California’s Asian-American populations. Together, we’re building resilient communities with the common goal of creating a culture of disaster readiness across California.


Five Steps To Preparedness

1 Get Alerts

Stay connected and informed by all means necessary to be prepared. Visit to stay updated.

2 Make A Plan

Have a plan in place and discuss with those who live with you to be prepared ahead of time. Mark key locations ahead of time on your phone to understand what’s closest in case of emergency.

3 Pack A Go Bag

Have a go-bag ready at all times packed with essentials. Keep in an easily accessible location to grab a moment's notice.

4 Build A Stay Box

If necessary stay home for safety purposes. Keep bottled water and non perishable food as a back up in case you’re unable to leave.

5 Help Friends, Neighbors & Family

Say in contact to create a plan of action and keep each other updated. Working together always yields greater results. A community is only as strong as those in it.
