1.      From Yefim Stone, C&N Engineers, inquiring if the San Francisco Fire Code is posted on the San Francisco web site and, if so, how to access it. Copy: Commissioners and Fire Marshal.


 

2.      From Richard Brandi, wondering how many of the recommendations from the 1989 earthquake have been implemented, and asking specifically how many were implemented regarding the water supply. Copy: Commissioners, Chief of Department and Deputy Chief, Administration.

3.      From Greg Simpson, praising the NERT program and encouraging the Commission to support it since disaster could strike the Bay Area at any moment and the valuable NERT training helps people prepare for and react to pending disasters.

4.      From Steven Zeluck, surprised to see as he was walking his dog by a fire station a firefighter skinning an animal behind the station.
