Narcan Trainings Available

The Office of the City Administrator is delighted to announce a significant public safety initiative led by the Entertainment Commission in collaboration with the SF Department of Public Health and SFGovTV. Together, they have developed a comprehensive training video covering essential topics, including:

→ Proper utilization of fentanyl test strips.

→ Identifying the signs of a fentanyl overdose.

→ Administering Naloxone nasal spray to effectively reverse an overdose.

As we are all aware, the surge in fentanyl-related overdoses has had a profound impact on San Francisco, and our nightlife and entertainment community have born the heaviest burden. Please take a moment to view the new Narcan training video and access Overdose Prevention Resources for Nightlife.

ORCP Develops New Earthquake Safety Program

The Office of Resilience and Capital Planning (ORCP) is in the process of developing a new earthquake safety program for older, vulnerable concrete buildings. The program aims to achieve the following goals: protect life and public safety, preserve housing and critical uses, protect the economy, preserve city vitality and character, and expedite earthquake recovery.

Over the past year, ORCP has assembled a working group consisting of 34 representatives from various stakeholders, including residential and commercial building owners, tenants, technical and policy experts, City staff, businesses, labor, and builders and developers. This collaborative effort is focused on developing a program that ensures that the Concrete Building Safety Program (CBSP) enhances community resilience and is practical to implement.
