The Weekly Read
San Francisco's disaster readiness page

It's the largest city in the nation's 11th largest metropolitan statistical area, and it was the site of the second deadliest natural disaster in American history - the 1906 earthquake and subsequent fires that killed nearly 6,000 people.

The City by the Bay has its act together when preparing its residents for a potential disaster.
That's why the city of San Francisco has one of the most advanced public education websites for disaster preparedness. The depth and breadth of the information provided in this website is impressive, encouraging residents to be ready for the 'big one' when it does happen. 

This site's organization, integration with social media and interactivity make it one which could serve as a model for other jurisdictions facing potential disasters of their own.
