Los Angeles County West Vector & Vector-Borne Disease Control District
Public Education Program
| Complementing our other services, the
Public Education Program works to inform residents about the life cycle of
and bees, protection from mosquito and tick borne diseases, safety around bee
hives and swarms, property owner's responsibilities, and the functions
of the District.
This is accomplished through the use of
informational brochures, fact sheets, city newsletters, public speaking engagements,
informational booths at local events, public service announcements and our
District web site.
|| The Public Education Department has
also implemented an educational program for public elementary schools.
Students are given the opportunity to learn hands
on about mosquitoes, bees, and ticks through the use of live and preserved
insect displays, videos, and insect related handouts.
School presentations are customized to match the
age of the students as well as the objectives of the teacher.
Thousands of pamphlets and
videos have been distributed regarding public health issues caused by mosquitoes, Africanized
honeybees, ticks and other vectors.
The District has been the lead agency in training
and coordinating fire departments, police departments, and 911 systems
throughout the District.
