SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— Emergency response agencies across the Bay Area are looking at disaster systems and protocols in the aftermath of Sunday’s 6.0 earthquake in the North Bay. Even agencies that were not directly involved in the response are learning lessons from the temblor.
San Francisco residents certainly felt the shaking shortly after three o’clock in the morning, but the city didn’t suffer much damage. Regardless, Anne Kronenberg, executive director of the City and County Department of Emergency Management, said her agency sprang into action.
“We quickly provided messages to San Franciscans through social media and traditional media. If you were following Twitter, I’m sure you saw the thousands of tweets that were happening,” she said.
