RESILIENT BAYVIEW: READY FOR ANYTHING

2017-2018 RESILIENT ACTION PLAN

Welcome to Resilient Bayview

Congratulations on a Successful Resilient Bayview Heatwave Workshop!

Resilient Bayview hosted its first ever Heatwave workshop event! We organized a community health preparedness campaign and previewed the Resilient Bayview Activation Strategy to over 40 Bayview community leaders!

UPDATES & ANNOUNCEMENTS

First Aid/CPR Certified Training (Free)

Resilient Bayview believes in empowering people to prepare for, and respond to, emergencies of all sizes. We do this is by providing individuals with the training and skills needed to help during times of crisis. By taking our first aid classes in San Francisco, you’re joining the ranks of millions worldwide who will be there to help when it’s needed most. This training will be held at the Bayview YMCA branch, conveniently located just off of Third Street, in the Bayview neighborhood. A light breakfast will be provided. We hope to see you there!

The Resilient Bayview Workshop was a Success!

In recent years, the Bayview has seen a significant increase in the number of heatwaves.  These events have stressed both the residents and the organizations that support them.  In 2017, the Dept. of Health partnered with the Neighborhood Empowerment Network and Resilient Bayview to craft a strategy that would build on the City’s approach for protecting the health and well-being of the vulnerable and wrap it in a narrative that is culturally competent for the Bayview community.

 

Our Accomplishments
Bayview EOC

Heat Center Activation

 

At approximately 19:00 hours on September 1, 2017 the City and County of San Francisco activated its EOC in response to the heatwave that was generating record temperatures in the City’s neighborhoods. HSA contacted the Neighborhood Empowerment Network (NEN) to stand up a cooling center in the Bayview community on Saturday, September 2nd from 10am to 6pm. The NEN activated its HUB operations team to support the HSA’s request. Over the course of the next fourteen hours the team identified a location (Bayview YMCA), secured staffing resources, managed the activation and operation of the cooling center and then demobilized at the request of the EOC. Despite the time of day and it being a holiday weekend, the Resilient Bayview Executive Steering Committee was able to organize around the mission of setting up a cooling center that met the criteria of the HSA in just under 3 hours. The activation of the cooling center and its management was effective and consistent with the principles of the incident command system.

About Us

Background

Since 2013, a group of Bayview non-profits, small businesses, faith-based organizations, residents and city agency stakeholders have been working to advance a vision for the Bayview. This vision is of a community rich in social & economic opportunity and success for residents and businesses. The Resilient Bayview program members have worked intensely to inventory and prioritize the goals and objectives for the various community stakeholders. These stakeholders are committed to making the Bayview a great place to live, work and visit.

Leadership

Coming Soon.

Bayview Towncenter Hub

The HUB initiative supports neighborhoods as they create community-based networks of organizations that advance the overall preparedness of communities across San Francisco.
A national conversation has begun which points to the importance of creating strategies for local organizations and residents to assume lifesaving responsibilities in the event of a disaster. These activities include search and rescue, mass feeding, and supporting people sheltering in place.
