San Franciscans live in one of the world’s most at-risk seismic zones and those who live and work here must take steps and prepare themselves for the next Big One, so they can work with the City to recover and rebound quickly. Training will focus on empowering the community throughout the Disaster Cycle. 

  • Pre Disaster
    • This general class covers the three steps to personal preparedness (Get Connected, Gather Supplies, and Make a Plan) focusing on a multi-hazard approach.  
  • During Disaster
    • The quick response and recovery during and after a catastrophic disaster can allow the community to rebound quicker.
  • Post Disaster 
    • Learning the basic techniques and building useful resources to support the recovery stage will bring life back to normal faster than the unprepared.
