The city of Laguna Beach will hold its fifth annual flood prevention device practice day on Oct. 23.

Laguna Beach business owners are encouraged to train their employees on how to install devices, such as coated plywood panels, within doorways to prevent water from entering their properties.

Employees should also be familiar with the location of equipment and receive copies of flood-proofing plans.

Laguna Beach has designated the fourth Monday of every October as a practice day for installing the flood prevention equipment.
