The Great Cooling Off

Near Mayor Ed Lee’s desk sits a roughly 150-page report spelling out exactly what to do if the Big One hits. It’s a break-glass-in-case-of-emergency guide, if you will, in the event that a major disaster like the 1906 earthquake and fire or 1989’s Loma Prieta quake strikes the city. Joining it at the beginning of next year will be a similarly wonkish report on what to do when the next economic or tech crash jolts the city’s economy from its Icarian heights.
