Strengthen our Emergency Facilities and Shorten Response Times

Emergency Response

In June 2014, San Francisco voters approved the $400 million Earthquake Safety and Emergency Response (ESER) Bond to continue to pay for repairs and improvements that will allow San Francisco to quickly respond to a major earthquake or disaster. The first phase of the program, ESER 2010, was approved by voters in June 2010. The Public Safety Building, with funding from ESER 2010, opened in April 2015. In addition, the 2016 Public Health and Safety Bond funded the construction of a modern and seismically safe Ambulance Deployment Facility. In the years to come, the City will continue to make improvements to neighborhood firehouses and upgrade our emergency firefighting water system, shortening response times and improving emergency services.
