San Francisco

San Francisco’s Resilience Journey

San Francisco is a worldwide tourist destination and a major technology hub for biotechnology and e-commerce, houses 30 of the world’s largest financial institutions – and has a history of devastating earthquakes and fires.

San Francisco has a notably diverse population, and is also a vital link for air, sea, and ground transportation. The city’s innovative use of financing and building codes has dramatically improved building safety, and its use of social media to educate and motivate the public has influenced residents to take important steps in advancing their personal resilience.
