The State of California’s Office of Emergency Services (CAL OES) has recently allocated over $2 million to San Francisco nonprofit and faith-based organizations to engage and empower San Francisco’s most vulnerable populations in emergency preparedness. SF CARD was chosen as the intermediary agency to manage and support the LISTOS program in San Francisco.


SF CARD has been named to serve as the community preparedness liaison for the Bay Area Urban Areas Security Initiative (BAUASI) Training and Exercise Program (TEP). 

SF CARD, in its role as community preparedness liaison, will work with Voluntary/Community Organizations Active in Disaster (V/COADS), health care coalitions, Community/Neighborhood Emergency Response Teams (C/NERT) networks, and other community partners to share training and exercise needs as well as information about TEP activities and provide a platform for ongoing stakeholder feedback.

With the Bay Area now experiencing more and more coronavirus cases, SF CARD would like to help your organization strengthen its response to this crisis.
SF CARD is offering human-service organizations two types of services, (1) A just-in-time (JIT) staff training and (2) operational technical assistance.

SF CARD – San Francisco Community Agencies Responding to Disaster – connects nonprofit, faith-based and private organizations with the network and knowledge they need to continue providing critical services after a disaster. We help organizations prepare for emergencies as small as a one-alarm fire and as large as a massive disaster wreaking havoc across the region. SF CARD’s function is threefold: Preparedness, Response and Recovery.
