LOS ANGELES, March 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following event was announced today by the American Red Cross of Greater Los Angeles:

What: The Greater Los Angeles Red Cross is hosting a lunch reception and grand opening of a state-of-the-art Emergency Operations Center (EOC), which is ready to be activated during major disasters, including earthquakes and wildfires -- even a disaster the size of Hurricane Katrina.

Who: More than 40 senior fire and police department members and officials from local governments and school districts around the Southland will get a sneak peak of the EOC. Tours will be provided by Red Cross Emergency & Disaster Response team members and Paul Schulz, Red Cross Chief Executive Officer. (A Spanish-speaking team member is available for interviews.)
