The best time to prepare for an emergency is before it happens. Print out the checklists and information sheets below and keep copies in an easy-to-reach location for immediate reference.
Make a Plan (PDF). After a major disaster, it is unlikely that emergency response services will be able to immediately respond to everyone's needs, so it's important to be prepared. The Make a Plan checklist will help you and your family prepare for an emergency.
Build a Kit (PDF). After a major disaster the usual services we take for granted, such as running water, refrigeration, and telephones may be unavailable. The Build a Kit checklist will enable you and your family to be self-sufficient for at least three days.
If you'd like to purchase a kit, City and County of San Francisco employees and their families can take advantage of discounts provided by the vendors below. The discount code for both vendors is SFDSW.
