Get Involved

Earthquake safety and making San Francisco resilience is work that we all must do--work we do together. The Earthquake Safety Implementation Program (ESIP) is an initiative where community involvement guides and informs public policy. We welcome all community members to come to the EPICENTER, our collaborative education and community outreach center, or to come to the various working groups and workshops we host, or contact us with questions and concerns.

The Neighborhood Support Center Program

(ESIP Task A.4.b and A.4.a)

A possible model of a Neighborhood Support Center at
the Safe Enough to Stay exhibit at SPUR, 2012.


The Neighborhood Support Center concept allows for a neighborhood-level, community-supported post-disaster response, organization, and support to those shelter in place in their homes. Meaning, after a disaster those staying in their homes will need the support of their community for supplies, communications, perhaps even food and water--This center, established right now, before the disaster, can be that place. Our partner, the Neighborhood Empowerment Network, is working with community leaders, City staff, and residents to establish these all over the City. We have convened a working group, as well.
