Increased Temp. this Week - Prepare Yourself and Those Around You to Stay Cool
During events, such as heatwaves, residents are more likely to safely negotiate the hazard if they are prepared and being supported by a network of neighbors, friends and associates. Please review the information below and take the time to get yourself ready and then reach out and check on the folks who may need your support.
Message from DPH: This week is going to be hot. Increased temperatures, predicted up to 90 degrees, are expected in the San Francisco Bay Area. Please be pro-active and check on the vulnerable populations you serve. These include the elderly, homebound, chronically ill, young children and homeless clients. With a phone call, a text, a knock on the door, or a conversation, please remind them to stay hydrated and keep cool. Take precautions now, so that when it gets really hot, they are ready.
For more tips about how to care for yourself and those around you, please visit the NEN's Heat Event Center..

In a public health emergency, such as a disease outbreak or bioterrorism, the residents of our communities will need access to medications as quickly as possible. The San Francisco Health Department is responsible with meeting this critical need by establishing locations throughout the city, called Point-of-Dispensing (POD) sites. The Department of Public Health cannot do this alone - they need our help!
