Disaster Planning: Mayor Unveils City Resilience Strategy
Mayor Edwin M. Lee today announced the release a citywide resiliency strategy created as part of a grant from 100 Resilient Cities – Pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation (100RC). One of the recommendations of the City’s Resilient San Francisco – Stronger Today, Stronger Tomorrow – is the launch of the new Office of Resilience and Recovery.
“San Francisco has a history of solving our challenges through bold action,” said Mayor Lee. “On the anniversary of the 1906 Great Earthquake and Fire, we remember our City’s past and look to the future. This new office will oversee the implementation of the resilience strategy and continue to work alongside City departments and work with our communities to ensure we are taking the steps necessary to make sure San Francisco rapidly recovers from any emergency.”
