Ready, Set, Prep!

As a tribute to AmeriCorps Service Week and to meet the need of the community we serve, the San Francisco Community HealthCorps will run a disaster preparedness fair called "Ready, Set, Prep!" for the residents of Single Room Occupancies (SROs) in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco on Monday, May 16th from 12-4pm at St. Anthony's [150 Golden Gate Ave, San Francisco].

At "Ready, Set, Prep!", participants can choose booths they would like to visit and topics they want to learn about. We hope to engage 50-100 marginally housed residents of the Tenderloin district of San Francisco in a disaster preparedness event where they will learn valuable skills, gather information and obtain the supplies necessary to increase their chances of survival during a disaster. Our HealthCorps group will collaborate with local police, fire fighters, and other agencies for the information and some staffing for the fair. We will have free food, disaster kits and first aid supplies, and all participants will be entered in a raffle to win a Deluxe Disaster Kit provided by the American Red Cross!
