Our community of Sylmar is one of the very few equestrian communities left in our great City of Angels. We urge all community members to be active in policies, procedures, and community meetings and decisions.
We are not suggesting or promoting the discussion to go towards one direction or the other. We simply promote all stakeholders to be part of the discussion and let their voices be heard.
In Sylmar, On Friday, December 1st. our LA City Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez and her team of elves (and Santa) held a spectacular Holiday Tree Lighting event at Sylmar Recreation Center (13109 Borden Ave. Sylmar, CA 91342)
Treats, sweets, and Ho Ho Hos were shared with all of the children and families that attended.
A fantastic, festive, and wonderful event!
See the flyer for continued Tree-Lighting events. (Dec. 5th Pacoima, Dec. 6th Mission Hills, Dec. 8th Sundland-Tujunga, & Pacoima Holiday Parade - December 9th.)
The LA City Mayor's Crisis Response Team is NOW recruiting for the Spring 2024 CRT Academy.
This class will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning Tuesday, February 27th to Thursday, April 25th.
Crisis Response Team (CRT) members are volunteers who respond to traumatic incidents at the request of the Los Angeles Police and Los Angeles Fire Departments. The CRT provides immediate on-scene crisis intervention and acts as a liaison between victims, survivors, and emergency personnel. Referrals are also given to victims and their families affected by death, violent crimes, or traumatic incidents. These incidents include homicide, suicide, serious traffic collisions, natural deaths, and multi-casualty incidents.

For Immediate Release:
November 21, 2023
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health’s Veterinary Public Health Program has received multiple reports of dogs experiencing a sudden respiratory illness of unknown origin, similar to case reports in other states. Symptoms include cough, nasal discharge, sneezing and lethargy in dogs. Currently, Public Health is in case-finding mode to determine if and to what extent there is a new respiratory illness impacting dogs in Los Angeles County. As additional information becomes available, we will update the public.
Since Thursday, November 16, 2023, we have received ten case reports from veterinarians of dogs that have respiratory illness but tested negative on the respiratory panel that tests for common viruses and bacteria seen in dogs with similar symptoms. Owners are being contacted to determine where the dogs may have become infected. We are communicating with federal and state entities to ensure coordinated efforts as we learn more from our ongoing investigations.
This respiratory illness is currently known as Atypical Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease (aCIRD). Cases are currently defined as having a negative canine respiratory PCR test panel, which tests for common viruses and bacteria identified in dogs with similar symptoms, PLUS one of the following clinical scenarios:
Given the lack of knowledge about the cause of this disease, veterinarians and dog owners are advised to be on the lookout for symptoms such as cough, sneezing, nasal discharge, and lethargy (lack of energy) in their dogs.
If a dog is experiencing these symptoms, owners should take the following steps:
This past Sunday, 11/19/24, Sylmar Stakeholders, members of the LAPD, and Sylmar Neighborhood Council members came together.
In turn helped our community to be even more beautiful and unified.
A huge thank you to all of the incredible Volunteers, LAPD Senior Lead Officer Crawford, Sylmar Graffiti Busters, and the members of the Sylmar Neighborhood Council.
