Earthquake Safety and Emergency Response (ESER) is San Francisco's bond program to strategically address critical public safety needs in the City. The program identifies seismic improvements and upgrades to City-owned facilities that are needed to help safeguard San Francisco.
The third phase of the ESER bond program was approved by voters with 82 percent approval during the March 2020 election. ESER 2020 will continue the work of the previous two ESER bonds that were overwhelmingly approved by voters in 2010 and 2014.
ESER 2010 and 2014 funded improvements to neighborhood fire stations, district police stations and the Emergency Firefighting Water System. They also funded construction of new facilities such as the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (Hunter's Point), the Public Safety Building (Mission Bay), Fire Station No. 16 (Marina District), and Fire Station No. 5 (Fillmore District).
