Sand Bags Available for Lomita Residents at City Hall While Supplies Last

City Hall is taking proactive measures to ensure the safety of its residents by providing sandbags to mitigate the impact of potential flooding. We have established a sandbag distribution point for residents. These sandbags are readily available and can be obtained by community members to fortify their properties and protect against flooding during heavy rainfall or other adverse weather conditions. By offering this resource, the city demonstrates its commitment to the well-being and safety of its citizens, fostering a sense of preparedness and community resilience.

Lomita Renews Agreement with American Red Cross

The City of Lomita recently extended its partnership with the American Red Cross to redesignate the Tom Rico Center as an emergency shelter to be utilized in the event of an earthquake, flood, or other natural disaster.

Lomita was the first of the 14 cities in the South Bay to renew their shelter agreement with the Red Cross. Red Cross’s emergency shelters provide a cost-free place to stay for both Lomita and South Bay residents who were forced to evacuate their homes in the event of a local disaster. Services offered include food and water, first aid, mental health services and help reconnecting with loved ones.

In addition as part of our renewed partnership, American Red Cross will be hosting blood drives, “Sound the Alarm” free smoke detector installations, among other emergency preparedness activites in Lomita. Check our website under Upcoming Events for dates and additional information.

People can request their FREE smoke alarms from the Red Cross and/or volunteer at

The Tom Rico Center is located at 24428 Eshelman Avenue. For more information on how to be Red Cross ready for any disaster, visit
