San Francisco Disaster Service Worker Programs
Category : Program or Division
All City and County employees are designated by both State and City law as Disaster Service Workers ("DSW"). When the Mayor declares a citywide emergency, all City and County employees serve as DSWs. In the event of a disaster, the Department of Emergency Management will activate its Emergency Operations Center (EOC), a multi-agency hub designed to manage emergencies. As part of the EOC, DHR will contact employees through its emergency notification system to advise them of whether and when to report to DSW duty.
