Welcome to the San Francisco Extreme Weather Resilience Program
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the San Francisco’s Department of Emergency Management’s San Francisco Extreme Weather Resilience Program. Below is an overview of this program, its benefits and the equipment that is available for acquisition after a successful onboarding process. If you have any questions, please contact Daniel Homsey at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The San Francisco Extreme Weather Resilience Program aims to strengthen citywide resiliency by establishing a network of culturally competent and community-serving organizations that are equipped to maintain service levels for the community during times of extreme weather.
Wildfires and extreme heat events in California have increased significantly over the past several years, causing negative impacts to vulnerable populations in San Francisco. The San Francisco Department of Emergency Management has gained access to regional and state funding to purchase and deploy air filters, air conditioners, solar charging stations, and generators to community-serving organizations in order to increase capacity to protect the health and well-being of clients, staff, and guests during severe weather events.
Eligible organizations include those that operate in San Francisco and serve communities that are at greater risk of experiencing negative health impacts during extreme weather, including but not limited to seniors, children, homebound, unsheltered homeless, and historically underserved populations. Organizations should have the organizational capacity and staff to continue their services during extreme weather events and will partner with the City’s emergency management agencies to provide situational awareness into how incidents are impacting communities in need.
The SF Department of Emergency has secured access to a wide range of equipment that mitigates the impact of extreme heat and poor air quality on your organization’s clients, staff and immediate neighbors.
