What is SF72?

SF72 is your hub for emergency preparedness. You’ll find information about what to do in an emergency, simple steps to get connected, and useful guides to help you get prepared. Share SF72 with a friend—and help your loved ones and your city get prepared.

SF72 is for us, by us. 

Our mission is to enable San Franciscans to get prepared. SF72 was created by the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management, with feedback and ideas from the people of San Francisco. The best way to do this is for us to get connected to each other and share resources.

SF72 is about connection.

When disaster strikes, we come together to help each other. Getting prepared is about knowing your neighbors, saying hi to the regulars at the local market, and staying in touch with family and friends—both digitally and in person. SF72.org shares ideas about how we can connect before an emergency so we’re more resilient in the face of an emergency.

We hope on a day when reflect upon what happened to the San Francisco Bay Area 24 years ago that you’ll visit http://www.sf72.org to learn how to be ready for just about any emergency–small or big.

And let us know what you think!
