Winter is Here: Now What?

As rain continues throughout the rest of today into tomorrow, it’s looking like the worst is behind us. So, now what?

First: many (if not most) of us did something to get ready for this storm—whether it was making sure you have extra batteries and a flashlight, or talking about how you’re going to manage your kid’s school being closed— you put your emergency preparedness knowledge into practice. And for this, you all get a huge thumbs up from your friends at the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management.

Second: While you can feel good about all you did to prepare for this storm, think about a few what ifs (e.g., extended grocery store closure, or power outage) and what can you do now that would make life easier if that were to occur and visit for more ideas.

Third: How’s your neighborhood doing? Is your power out? Do you know any neighbors who may need extra help? If so, we encourage you to check on them.

Fourth: Share what you did to get prepared for #hellastorm with your friends, and ask them what they did get ready (we’d love to hear about this too, so comment here or share your preparedness wins with us on @SF72org).

In closing: Guess what San Francisco? You’re more prepared than you think…and you’re more prepared today than you were yesterday!
