Preparing for Heat Emergencies (Tuesday, July 14, 6:30 to 7:30 PM)

Most homes in San Francisco do not have air conditioning. Until recently, this has meant a week or so of uncomfortable sleeping in the late fall, but heat emergencies have become more common over the past few years. A heat emergency is defined as 2 or more days with temperatures over 80 degrees.
 
The next training event from Resilient Diamond Heights and Resilient Noe Valley will equip you to protect your household in the next heat emergency. It also will help you keep vulnerable relatives or friends safe, even if they live at a different address.
 
Heat impacts healthy people, but has more risk for those of advanced age, with various medical conditions, or doing heavy physical work. This training helps you:

  • Know where to find the coolest parts of your home
  • Recognize symptoms of heat illness and how to apply first aid
  • Understand the best ways to use fans to provide comfort 

Greg Carey, a member of the Resilient Diamond Heights Steering Committee, will lead the training. 

If interested in attending this virtual training, please reply to Betsy Eddy at betsy.eddy@gmail.com. Betsy will email the Zoom link to you a couple of days before the presentation.

Please share this announcement with friends, neighbors and your email lists.

Stay safe and be well, 

Resilient Diamond Heights Steering Committee
