Events Overview

San Francisco is an international destination and a wide range of events are hosted in our city. We want to make sure people enjoy themselves and stay safe. The Department of Emergency Management works closely with our City partners and the community both before and during major public events. In advance of these events we host a large planning meeting that takes into account possible street closures, re-routes for transit, emergency operations, medical plans, and safety.

If you are an event organizer and would like more information about emergency medical plans for special events, please visit the Emergency Medical Services Agency’s page for Mass Gatherings and Special Events Planning.
