SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — Many of San Francisco’s first responders including, police, fire, and other emergency personnel, live in the East Bay. So what would the city do if disaster were to strike while the Bay Bridge is closed?
There is an old disaster plan in place to get responders into the city while the bridge is down; meaning they would have first access to public transit, according to Fire Department Spokeswoman Mindy Talmage.
“They’re all disaster service workers. They all have identification and they would have first right to use whatever public transportation was available,” she said.
