Given the unique location of San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area, the region is exposed to a multitude of potential natural disasters. As climate change continues to increase the intensity of weather events and our geographic location promises another high-magnitude earthquake, it is essential to understand the emergency response framework that will respond to potential catastrophic events.
At the Bay Planning Coalition’s annual Spring Summit, the event focused on emergency event responses with three panels: 1) Funding Mechanisms; 2) Planning & Permitting; and 3) Implementation. Covering the three critical components of disaster plans, our 2023 Spring Summit provided valuable information to ensure regional stakeholders, community members, and industries, are aware of the response framework in place.
Thank you to our event sponsors, speakers, and attendees for participating in this year’s Summit. We look forward to seeing you at future BPC events!
