Thanks for being a polite guest in our fine neighborhood - Hollywood, California.
While visiting any of the areas we recommend, make sure to take a cell phone with you. Check that your battery is fully charged.

If, however, you find your way to safety before you are rescued, please contact 9-1-1 again and let them know that you are safe so they can stop searching for you. Thanks.
