The Federal Emergency Management Agency announced last Thursday that Los Angeles will receive a $1.2 million grant to help it prepare for, prevent and respond to “complex coordinated terrorist attacks.”

The grant was part of $35.94 million the agency awarded for anti- terrorist efforts to city, county and state governments around the country.

“Attacks we have seen around the world have shown us the importance of continuing to build strong, resilient, and prepared communities,” said FEMA Administrator Brock Long. “These grants will serve as a catalyst to support communities across the country to enhance resilience and continue to build capacity at the local level.”

FEMA said recent terrorist incidents in London, Boston, San Bernardino, Paris,  Kenya and Belgium highlight an emerging threat known as complex coordinated terrorist attacks.

The grant, which will go to the Los Angeles Mayor’s Office of Public Safety, will help the city enhance its preparedness for a coordinated attack, which will include updating its plans and conducting exercises.
