“It is imperative that our fire stations, located in every neighborhood of San Francisco, are seismically safe to ensure a timely response to the over 120,000 incidents that the San Francisco Fire Department responds to each year. In addition, our emergency firefighting water system will receive funding to repair, replace and improve this most vital component to suppressing fires in our City. ESER 2014 will allow for day to day improvement and efficiencies in our Department and will play a critical role in our effectiveness with any large scale disaster. It is a sound investment in our City’s future.”
Neighborhood Fire Stations ($85 million)
What if we do not seismically rehabilitate and improve these fire stations?
The fire stations identified have structural deficiencies that may inhibit a firefighter’s ability to respond during and after an earthquake, a major disaster, or on a day to day basis. Some firehouses may not be operational after a large earthquake or disaster, threatening the ability of the firefighters to respond to an emergency. If this investment is postponed, the cost to undergo these projects will escalate by as much as $4 million every year until the projects are complete.
ESER 2010 work underway
ESER 2014 is a continuation of the projects first addressed through ESER bond program which works similarly to seismically repair the City’s deteriorating infrastructure and enhance emergency response for the highest level of health, safety and welfare achievable for all San Franciscans. San Francisco must continue investing in the City's first response infrastructure as the City grows and facilities continue to deteriorate with nonstop use.
ESER 2010 identified improvements and seismic upgrades to 23 of the 42 neighborhood firehouses which are located in every district of San Francisco. These improvements are being successfully implemented at these 23 stations and work will continue through 2016. The work is being carefully phased to maintain adequate fire department service throughout the City.
