Our mission is to put free disaster preparedness guides into every household in San Francisco.

Why, isn’t all that information available online?

 

Yes, it is. Despite that, and numerous campaigns, 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. 

 

We believe putting free guides in every home will ensure that critical information is available when the need arises (because, what are you going to do if the internet is down?)
