4:31 pm
own today embraces in entire week we always burglary pray and hope we never are visit by disaster and one way that helps us to have a strong military force to make sure our defense are laser clear we we celebrate our men and women that also serve in that capacity we've taken the tremendous opportunity we're presented with fleet week and made that an additional to one of the most active fleet week we can image not with the events that louis identified as well as but in collaboration that the department of emergency our fire department and police department all of the agencies from muni to the public works to the volunteers that red cross
4:32 pm
and the tremendous communities collaboration over the years when we had navel landing contrast on ocean beach or in the replenishing we continued the very special practice of commissioner melara that we create the relationships that are necessary in case an event were to happen in san francisco or the bay area no other part of country not only slbltd like we do but takes the opportunity to make sure we practice all the things we want to do in case an event man made or natural earthquake and be looking at you know winter we're looking at all kinds of things that can happen we'll time to have practiced those very things that we want to have happen on the shores and within the boundary of san francisco that means questions like how do
4:33 pm
we bring emergency workers back to the city in time and how we triage those are injured and on their own in the first 72 hours to insure we don't have pockets of solicitation in the city is given with something i everything the military is well known to, of course, the defense of country they're most known for but i also think that is military including all of the difference divisions and our coast guard are most known for the logistics expert they get things when people need them in the constant of time when they need them we've been working on that as we work on landing crafts and we can fit on them just this morning to follow up with the desk tape experience on a 7.4 i think earthquake or 7.5
4:34 pm
that we also wanted to have landing crafts that bring supplies in we'll bring trucks from other agencies not only the military trucks that are staged here but if you look at all the collaboration we've done you'll see american red cross and go, of course, our that emergency vehicles and pg&e vehicles in an effort to mash or make sure that supplies and emergency responders are there in any part of city to help them restore as soon as possible you you know why it takes practice this morning we find out that southern types of vehicles a local utility company will couldn't necessarily get on the level in which that landing craft was going to land in the city i know that is going to cause that utility work to work closer with us to make sure they
4:35 pm
have the right vehicles and they can respond when you need them those are times this should be found out not during the disaster it's iris this is exactly why practice a simulations and relationship building with the military partners is so variable to city like san francisco we are three-quarters surrounded by water we'll know and often expect that traffic will be stopped for many varieties of reasons we have to take advantage of those landing craft and all the other military type of vehicles that might be assessable to us i want to say a great thanks joe who is here in the middle-income family association more than observing but hermosa beach up to critique the things we can do with our
4:36 pm
maritime friends and rear admiral to his wonderful staff with our navy and fleet i want to say a special thank you to them because the relationships we're building is not just the mayor and the high command you've got to know the logistics the people that run this sheriff deputy ship are talking directly with the people that run our city day to day and make sure the logizing and engineers are talking with each other more handshakes exchanging practices that will necessarily be experienced in a large event in the invaluable to any city i ask every other cities in the country without that practice and the names and agencies associations generally the first
4:37 pm
72 hours is confusion and misdirection it is one sacrificing to e casing saying to the other and command structures that are complimentary to each other in a major disaster there has of a be one set of commands that are obeyed and carried figure out that why we want to work with them and have our fire department and police department our emergency renders when i have a chance in addition to all the lovely beautiful things the blue adams to the vehicles that are here to military vehicles and ships that are here during the week with take into account something that it is special units of firefighters of fire department our emt and department of emergency has done in converting a muni bus this
