Given recent fires in California, the following sites provide some useful resources

Landslide and Mudflow safety tips: This site provides a nice overview of mudslide safety (you have to scroll down a bit to see the article).

Flood-Proof Landscaping: Protect Your Home and Property: This article has valuable  information for people who need to divert water away from their property – especially critical for those living in an area prone to mudslides.

Landslide Safety Checklist: Less comprehensive than the resource above, but still worth sharing – nicely formatted in a way it could be printed and hung up on the refrigerator for quick access and reference.

Infographic: Disaster preparedness essentials: A great visual for what you should keep on hand in the event of a mudslide or any other disaster – Angie’s List recommends your  supplies should be put together to sustain you for at least 72 hours.

After the Mudslide, Protecting Public Health: Although this appears to be written for first responders, the information on landslide-related health risks is valuable for everyone.

The Ultimate SoCal Disaster Safety Guide: This has a great section on landslides, among others on flooding, wildfires, and earthquakes. It was developed for Southern California residents, but provides valuable information for anyone at risk of any of these disasters no matter where they live.
