"There is a 70% probability of at least one magnitude 6.7 or greater quake, capable of causing widespread damage, striking the San Francisco Bay Region before 2030. Major quakes may occur in any part of this rapidly growing region."
1999 U.S. Geological Survey
This quote from an October 1999 U.S. Geological Survey emphasizes the urgency for all communities in the Bay region to continue preparing for earthquakes. Acknowledging this significant risk, and recognizing the special needs of the community's vulnerable population, the Triad Alliance was developed to ensure that high risk clients don't "fall through the cracks" during the response and recovery phases of an emergency. The City of San Leandro, California (located in the San Francisco Bay Area region), in partnership with the Collaborating Agencies Responding to Disasters (CARD), has taken the steps to address the special and unique needs associated with the community's vulnerable population during and after a disaster.
