The Los Angeles civil unrest in April 1992 stunned the nation.
The days of violence resulted in 53 deaths, 2,325 reported injuries, more than 600 building completely destroyed by fire, and approximately $735 million in total damages.
The purpose of this paper is to give an overview of the activities of the Public Health Programs and Service Branch of the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services during and after the civil unrest and to illustrate the types of public health issues and problems that may result from large-scale civil disturbance.
