An initiative to put free disaster preparedness guides into every home in San Francisco. While there’s plenty of information online, many households still don’t have kits or plans. More importantly, most people don’t know how (or when) to shut off their utilities in an emergency. Having a physical guide will ensure that critical information is available when needed (because, what are you going to do if the internet is down?)
With a grant from Sappi Ideas that Matter, and some crowdfunding, we were able to print and mail these bi-lingual guides to over 54,000 households. The guides were sent to homes primarily in districts 10 and 11, including parts of the Bayview, Portola, Visitation Valley, and Excelsior neighborhoods.
