8:22 pm
>> hi, i'm with building san francisco. and we have a special program of stay safe today where we're going to talk about what you can do to your home after an earthquake to make it waterproof and to be more comfortable. we're here at spur in san francisco, this wonderful exhibit of safe enough to stay. and this is an example of what your home might be like after an earthquake. and we have today with us ben latimer from tvan. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> we'll talk about things you can do you don't have to be a professional contractor to make your home more livable after an earthquake. >> i want to talk about things a homeowner can do.
8:23 pm
we have comfort and we have things like a little bit of maybe safety if your front door is ajar and waterproofing if you have a leak in your roof, or if you have broken glass on the window. >> so unr, one of the most important fib use is keeping outside out and inside in. let's look at windows. >> let's assume this window is broken in the earthquake. we have wind and rain blowing in. one of the most important things you need to do as a homeowner is secure the plastic properly. if you just take staples or nails and put them into the plastic, we're going to get a strong wind and rip it right off. what i'm going to have somebody do is they're going to have -- this is an old piece of shingle. you might have -- everybody has a piece of wood in their basement. it doesn't have to be fancy. they take out this rusty screw begun, and hopefully you have one of these. >> there is one at the neighborhood support center. >> at the neighborhood support center. you're going to wrap this plastic around this board, take
8:24 pm
your screw. and then screw that in. >> you need a permit for this? >> you do need a permit for this. and you can contact the former head building inspector to get that permit. that's it. now when the wind blows, it's tight and it's not going to pull through, having a single point of contact. >> great. what about this door? take a look at this door. what can you do? let's say it doesn't shut tight. what can you do? >> for the sake of argument, we're on the inside. i can't lock my door at night. i have a very similar, very similar idea. i'm going to take my 2 by 4. i can put it across the jamb in the door. one. two. maybe i want another one up here, maybe another one down there. but i can go to sleep. and
8:25 pm
that quickly, i can get it off in the morning. >> terrific. what about the roof up here? we see people throw blue tarps over their roof after an earthquake. that seems reasonable. >> i think the blue tarp is reasonable. the things that people want to know that they need to know is if you have multiple tarps, how you overlap. starting from the bottom and moving up so that you're overlapping this way. so, rain running down doesn't slide under your tarp. >> right. >> and the same technique we did over here, as silly as it may sound, wrapping the end of that blue tarp with your board and then securing that if you can underneath, if you have to on top is fine. but making sure that you don't have an area where the wind is going to get under and bill owe that tarp. >> the wind can rip it right off. >> and then you're back up there again. >> let's go inside and check out what we can do inside. >> old fun. here we go. >> so, ben, i see you have nails, universal tool right here. >> man's best friend. duct tape. let me show you a couple things we can use this for after an
8:26 pm
earthquake. this window right here, because it's off kilter, we have open seams all along. i have a lot of air coming through. i want to stay comfortable at night. i want to keep that air out. it's as simple as that, all the way around. >> excellent. >> now i don't have any air coming in. let's say this one is one that would annoy me. everything is a little off. my doors won't stay closed. i take a piece of my favorite duct tape here, close it up. and at least it will stay out of my way when i'm trying to live throughout my day. if we're not talking about pressurized water, we're talking about just the drain, sometimes they're going to get a crack here. >> right, sure. >> and you're going to get a leak. duct tape around that is going to help us get through until we can get a plumber out and get that fixed as well. let's say we only have electricity in one room, so we're running extension cords across the house. if i'm going to run an extension cord from one room to the other, i don't want kids tripping on it. i don't want to trippon it. i take my trusty duct tape, tape it to the floor, and i don't have to worry about it
8:27 pm
getting kicked. >> great, great. look at this. let's look at the duct tape here because we see a big -- >> yes. in the event of an earthquake, i don't think we're going to have too many -- too much debris that's safe to put into a plastic bag, even as strong as it might be. these are called vice bags. this is what they use to put rice and things when they ship it. this is something where i take my glass, i can take broken pieces of wood, i can take anything sharp and fill it. and it's not going to puncture and come out. it's not going to fall all over the floor. i've not going to have it sticking out, maybe scratch myself, cut myself or anything like that. these are a great thing to have. >> you have a little go-to box for emergencies. that's great. thanks very much for joining us, ben. it's really been interesting. and i want to thank you all for joining us here at the spur urban center. and we'll see you again present
8:28 pm
8:29 pm
>> (clapping.) >> good morning, everyone i hope your bundled up in this chilly place down here an exciting moment so welcome my name is deb the director of san francisco department of the environment and i'm thrilled to be here today, we have an amazing announcement to make with a phenomenal group of exams at my side it is not everyday we find ourselves blow ground in a parking garage to make a press announcements and some say an indication how far we'll go to take the lead i see that as reaching new height we're in fact, below ground electric vehicles that's why we're here
8:30 pm
basically we are here because the world needs to follow solve the climate problem an electric vehicles getting off of gallon and diesel is a big part of the solution electric vehicles are more and more adopt we're seeing more and more people buying electrical vehicles as people's awareness comes up to speed but the problem ero over and over is the lack avenue charging people don't have a place inform plug in their vehicle at night or at work we need to a solve that problem here in san francisco that's why we're here today because mayor ed lee and supervisor katie tang have a solution and their talk about that solution and help us understand both the need and the excitement as well as what is localities of that law will be so i first want to thank mayor
8:31 pm
ed lee for his leadership in maintaining us at the front lines of climate action thank you for your strong voice and reinforcing san francisco values of electing people and the environment no person feels that as deeply as mayor ed lee so let's welcome mayor ed lee and hear what he has to say. >> (clapping.) >> thank you thank you, debbie and you and the entire staff at the environment commission and department for your leadership to make sure we accomplish the climate agenda i as a also want to say thank you for supervisor katie tang in producing that important legislation mike i met you today congratulations on the wonderful building i understand now that all the
8:32 pm
tenants are being exposed to one of the best chinese restaurants on the cornerstone the golden carrousel let me begin by saying that our legislation and i just arrived in my official car that is the chevy volt every time he go in the car and that green engage didn't end he feel pretty good about getting around the city it is on sunshine and electric vehicle i'm contributing to the quality of life for everyone in the city i know that electric vehicle users and owners feel the same way but more and more than feeling good it makes sense that's why supervisor tang and i teamed up with the department of the environment to say what else can we support this growth
8:33 pm
it happens to be that 50 percent of all electric vehicles sales in the country happen in the state of california the bulk of which happen in the bay area so we got to support this trend we also know i know that a great part of it i think that someone in the federal government is using this word although we'll see it is infrastructure and it is important that as we have studied the establishment of charging stations around the city for quite a few of the years to figure out how better to support users and owners of electric vehicles by making that part of our infrastructure so the purpose of this legislation is that for all new developments going forward it will be required they create the infrastructure to support
8:34 pm
electric vehicles that didn't mean you - we're going to be requiring the build out but that means and one of the most expensive parts and time consuming parts after a building is built brick in the wiring to those buildings this is having a cost in my of the establishment across the country across the city a lot of users on every level wanting and desiring to have their electric vehicles but the infrastructure is not under will i'm talking about all the apartments buildings and the homes and a condition i think will end up saving the developers the cost of putting in one later to have it wired to charging stations can be placed there when the tenants and businesses move in i think this is exactly what i expected he wanted from our
8:35 pm
department of the environment to guide us because it is more thinking this is what we've been done all along in our entire lives as we accomplish what eave already done and it makes sense because right now i think we have a epa administrator that suggests that complying with environmental climate goal is anti business i suggest to you that the facts the real facts show in san francisco the contemporary market our city has been able to reduce the green house gas emissions by 23 percent at the same time that our population has grown by 15 percent and that that our economics are economy has grown by over 50 percent because people want to
8:36 pm
live in cities in buildings, that working believes that are greener and while this is happening and we believe - we had those conversations, in fact, i think we've done it art collaborated with the developers with investors with people in the housing coalition that are here today it makes sense to do it as early as possible in order to reduce the cost of putting in the infrastructure later on, i think this is just forward thinking and smart and also a commitment developers like mr. cohen who is already done it right here that's why we take advantage and thank you, mike for getting us in your garage i got to visit one of your units that is the right thing to do and this is how we work with everybody and collaborative with
8:37 pm
everyone in order to get to the climatic change goals that's why your operations people want to be part of the greener city not only are we taking care of infrastructure as recently a few weeks ago we announced a free city college one of the passes that one can take to city college we have many is the students and teachers here today is the i think many say called the hybrid and ev certification program at the san francisco city college and today, we have students and teachers let's give them a hand. >> (clapping.) >> they are part of the present and the future workforce the clean workforce those are clean mechanics you ever hear of a mechanic that is clean those are clean green mechanics as part of workforce and highlight them as
8:38 pm
part of legislation behind green goals of the city we've always this is something that deb and others and i talked about when she was hired but make sure we create those skill sets that's why commissioner tang and i are excited to introduce this legislation and make a milestone in your opinion particularly the residential development the other reason i know the housing action coalition is here when you build the infrastructure everyone can use is not just the people who are living in market-rate apartments low income units and the below-market rate unit and families that can now say hey in the infrastructure is there it takes away the ain't of considering 100 percent electric vehicle car for their use so the
8:39 pm
environment goals the climatic change goals it that we have shouldn't be in the way of people's prosperity and progress that is exactly the reason we wanted to make that announcements the way we're doing it in the building that is build out and inviting the residents to buy their mo' magic like 9 unit away from full capacity maybe in a few weeks they'll get this building occupied they've been open for less than a year thank you to everyone son staple for allowing us as a city to exemplify our climatic change million people inform other parts of the country are nay surveyors we have a friend and many cities in
8:40 pm
the state of california across the country who are collaborating on that very thing and want to be the best works i want to congratulate everyone here and thank you. let's get in legislation on and more buildings ready for the 100 percent easy ready city thank you. >> (clapping.) >> wow. there is cleaver a lot to celebrate here this is a legislation that is holistic in its view and holistic not only in the number of parking spaces that will serve but the number of people as well we're incredibly proud of that our next speaker supervisor katie tang is an incredible challenge she said deb how are we going to get more clare across the city and it was a great question and in fact, i was happy to hear her
8:41 pm
it was a question i was asking we've been looking at as a department for months before she asked that question but she wasn't willing to wait for us to come to her we have to lead by example what about our own fleet for the city police to be 100 percent electric so she called a hearing of city departments and said how will you get us to 100 percent so this is a politician a resident a woman who speaks from the heart and is has a vision of 100 percent electric san francisco and it is such an honor to work with her and get her help to a move 24 through the board of supervisors let's welcome supervisor katie tang >> (clapping.)
8:42 pm
>> thank you for being here. and thank you for the sf staff deb and jesse and others i saw everyone who is at the present environment listening to me you couldn't ask those questions you might wonder how i got interested i live in a multi unit building it is not as nice as this and timed to drive an electric vehicle i was researching and went so for as to test drive one, if i brought it home i couldn't plug it in i did contract the department of the environment and said to my surprised not surprised i was blessed spent a lot of time researching easy and had gone to other countries to see how it is they do it in norway and
8:43 pm
scandinavia taken the lead but felt like san francisco we should be the part continuing my tradition of corny jokes the mayor didn't have one we looked at the fleet and today director reaping mentions i'll be introducing legislation to make sure that by the year 2020 in san francisco we'll be utility weight emission we as city government take the leads on the issue but we through the other legislation that partnering with the mayor on will be able to make sure we are all electric vehicle ready in san francisco and i'll say another great benefit to being all electric in times of the emergencies much, much safer that is people think gosh we're reliant on the cars
8:44 pm
had is that we're driving what is in it and when things happen it is an "x" above device in terms of the electric it main ace in terms of our legislation we're looking at the fleet built in language as technology tons to improve we adopt to it and this is important we're not just stuck in the times right now there can be many things we can adopt to better technology and more efficient 0 i think outside the box at this time when we have individuals and entities in the federal government that don't believe in climatic change that here in san francisco we know that is real and that we need to address it now and plan for it plan for our future we have a have a future on the earth thank you for this especially the department of emergency management and let's
8:45 pm
go ev. >> (clapping.) >> wow. thank you, supervisor is to so inspiring to work in a city i'll surrounded by champions especially, as we compare to other parts of the country right now so as you've heard this ordinance was not done in a volume we worked on that with a large number of partners i want to thank you who are here that worked on this ordinance where you're from the housing world, the electrical utility or fellow city departments like the department of building inspection and the planning department we all came together to put that legislation before the board of supervisors but as you work on this sort of paper trail it is very hard sometimes to envision what the outcome looks like 0 so we're
8:46 pm
blessed to say have a real world example of what this ordinance about do for buildings in the future i did is a beautiful spot if this is an underground parking garage at least we can image the beautiful garden on top of us and he is juxtaposition the way that was envisioned i have to give oyster development a lot of credit they put in thirty electrical charging stations with no guarantee their occupants will get out there but a tremendous i know people without electric vehicles purchasing a parking space it was likely in the future they'll get an electric vehicle so oyster and mike
8:47 pm
understood they're not just meeting a present demand but for the future with that, help me in honoring mike ma cotton from oyster development. >> (clapping.) >> thank you there's so that note worthy things i'm tickled there is so many people in the garage thank you i don't have a gift of the previous speaker i'll read a little bit here so we're here bus rockwell has proved that the market for electric vehicles is strong and i'm here to express my support because it recognizes the growing demand for evs and many
8:48 pm
actions to turn back the negative impacts of the reliance rockwell is for the community with 200 and 59 units and 200 plus parking spaces all the spaces move behind the gate some of you witnessed that rockwell is visually sold-out with the homes available mayor. (laughter) to your point thirty spaces at this point westbound built in roughly 50 percent of 200 that have electrical car charges and only 3 available that's encouraging the market demand that 14 percent for this building type we've also put in the capacity
8:49 pm
coincidentally similar to the requirements of ordinance one of the innovations is charges mounted on the puzzle list not done before in the u.s. so i'll speak a little bit later to who helped us out but inform commercial about oyster development leads by gene creates with a focus on more than architecture for the needs of homeowners duo to date 53 oyster communities marlow a few blocks away and vetting to in the mission and rockwell for a previous company dean and i development at mission bay when is silver with all the communities have in common the
8:50 pm
playful more than architecture design that is in the present and looking forward which i believe attracts positive forward thinking people forward thinking people complete oysters goal of the successful community it is this personality that is compelled the electric vehicle market where it is today and ask that oyster upgrade rock wells parking spaces with the car charges san francisco home to the positive forward thinking people that will keep us at the forefront of social and environmental movement it is an 0 another example of our progressiveness that leads the money we didn't install more than 3 percent of charges and
8:51 pm
didn't have plans for expand ability after the sales office opened the abuser expressed an interest in the charges we were lucky to have the capacity and karate's enough to believe that we could find a way to install the charges without assurances that we could get the building department approval without the knowledge of the cost we presold most of 0 thirty charges with the help of charge portfolio here today their product cupertino the manufacturer of the puzzle list we were the first to accomplish what soon that be canopy in san francisco and every ciall aroun the world it took a well the
8:52 pm
genus you don't have to be lucky to have access capacity that will be built in i'm in support of easy readiness ordinance for the environmental benefits for the developers to prepare for the future i look forward to working with mayor ed lee and supervisor tang and the department of the environment and other stakeholders to fine-tune other factors the easy readiness ordinance it constitutional right critical for the future thank you >> (clapping.) >> that warms my heart to hear the developer call our policy genus thank you. >> the mayor said we are not alone in san francisco state of
8:53 pm
california is a beacon for the rest of the country and josh has made a goal of one half a million vehicles by two 25 the state gets the incentive allows us to drive in hov lines with emission cars takes citywide san francisco and as well as hayward and fremont and other places in california to make that real and make that possible for every person to take advantage of the driving an electrical car and incredibly important this 0 policy not just for about for those who can afford an expensive unit in san francisco this policy applies to
8:54 pm
affordable housing units and market-rate housing in order to do that we have to work with the housing developers to make sure whatever we put in place is practical for them as well and incredibly our honor to have met rob poole and worked with the housing action coalition and be a part of their world to hear from their members so the language in the ordnances is both achieveable for their development as well so with that, let's welcome rob poo poole. >> good morning i'll keep my remarks brief i'm a little bit tired tour affordable housing people will be installing the easy stations we're excited to be here for this ordinance at
