a tight schedule. i would like mr. mayor to come up, please and say a few words. thank you. >> thank you. officer monroe. good evening, everyone. this is a really happy occasion, and i did when chief suhr notified me that this would be happ happening. i wanted to be sure i put in time to come before you for a brief moment and share my appreciation for the police force. to the commissioners and president mazzucco and the commission, and to the staff and awardees tonight. i know there is 41 of you out there with family and friends. but i want to say to the 2,000
sworn men and women in the san francisco police force. i am very proud of you, and as hard as i work, i know there are people that work harder than i, and i don't put my life on the line every day when i go out there. but for a world-class city to have this status as one of the best cities to live in, and work in and visit. you have to have a police force that rises to world-class standards. and the san francisco police department is world-class standard. tonight with the recognition of the medals of valor, we continue, i think, a very important culture. a culture that is measured by the performance of its officers and those who tonight exceed that standard in every way. and you know, it's kind of hard for me to get to know everyone
up to 2,000 officers that work in our police department. i do see the results though. and i don't think we could have landed the bid for the super bowl hosting 50 without a world class department. we could not have landed the americus cup in san francisco, without the signaling of the best police department in the country. we could not have landed so many of these world-class events and continue the pride of being one of the fastest recovering cities in all of our country without a good police force. and so i made it a point tonight to come here and to let you know, i may not know each of the officers allegiance to your favorite baseball team or favorite football team or favorite basketball team. but i will before i am done. because i do know that we share
in common the success of this city. i know that on a daily basis, whether you are walking the neighborhoods of south of market or tenderloin and bay-view or any number of neighborhoods, you are doing the best you can. you are looking out for people. and i know that as the mayor of this city, we also got your back covered as well. because we don't have each other back's covered, we don't have the trust that we need to have to move forward in this city. i want to say thank you to each of the 2,000 men and women that serve in this police department. the commission. the commanding staff. the police officer's association that works closely with all of us as well. and not only thank you to all of you, but tonight for those who have earned the medal of valor. you know it's important to have these events because the
particular event that caused the bravery to occur, are no longer on the front pages of our newspapers. but they are in our memories. in the men and women, the people you work alongside. the family and friends and commissioners, they know who you are. and the rest of the city, 26,000 people that work for this city, we also know who has put themselves on the line to save others, to bring more efficiencies to the city, to bring pride and who you tutor, the kids, the extra time it takes to get at-risk youth to turn their heads. and to make a pause and suggest a better life. the extra hours that the officers put in, all of you, i see that every day. and i know there is results. in fact if you look at the numbers today, knock on wood -- we are still at the historic
time of low homicides in the city, we want to keep it that way, we want to keep the success going. thank you for your mayor, i want you to know that i am a grateful mayor to this police force and to all the people that serve it. and tonight i celebrate with you the recipients of the medals of valor to know that i appreciate the extra effort that its taken for you to get this award and recognition. i am proud of you, not only as officers and employees of the city. but proud of you being our city's heroes tonight. congratulations and thank you very much.

today we are going to talk about fire safety. we are here at the urban center on mission street in san francisco. it's a wonderful display. a little house in the urban center exhibition center that shows what it's like in a home in san francisco after an earthquake. one of the major issues that we are going to face after earthquakes are fire hazard. we are happy to have the fire marshall join us today. >> thank you. my pleasure. >> we talk about the san francisco earthquake that was a fire that mostly devastated the
city. how do we avoid that kind of problem. how can we reduce fire hazard? >> the construction was a lot different. we don't expect what we had then. we want to make sure with the gas heaters that the gas is shut off. >> if you shut it off you are going to have no hot water or heat. be careful not to shut it off unless you smell gas. >> absolutely because once you do shut it off you should have the utility company come in and turn it back on. here is a mock up of a gas hear the on a house. where would we find the gas meter? >> it should be in your garage. everyone should be familiar
with where the gas meter is. >> one of the tools is a wrench, a crescent wrench. >> yes. the crescent wrench is good and this is a perfect example of how to have it so you can loosen it up and use it when you need it. >> okay. let's go inside to talk about fire safety. many of the issues here relate to fire, for example, we have a little smoke detector and i see you brought one here, a carbon monoxide smoke detector. >> this is a combination of smoke and carbon monoxide detector. they are required in single homes now and in apartment buildings. if gas
appliance is not burning properly this will alert you before the fumes buildup and will affect you negatively. >> this is a battery powered? >> this is a battery powered and it has a 10 year battery life. a lot of times you may have one or the other. if you put in just a carbon monoxide detector, it's important to have one of these too. every house should have a fire extinguisher, yes. >> one thing people expect to do when the power goes out after an earthquake about using candles. what would you recommend? >> if you have a battery operated candle would be better to use. this kind of a candle, you wouldn't want it in an area
where it can cause a fire or aftershock that it doesn't rollover. you definitely want to have this in a non-combustible surface. >> now, here we have our stove. after a significant earthquake we expect that we may have gas disrupted and so without gas in your home, how are you going to cook? >> well, i wouldn't recommend cooking inside of the house. you have to go outside and use a portable stove or something else. >> so it wouldn't be safe to use your fireplace to cook?
>> not at first. you should check it by a professional first. >> outside should be a safe place to cook as long as you stay away from buildings and doors and windows. >> yes. that will be fine. >> here we have some alternative cooking areas. >> you can barbecue and if you have a regular propane bark could barbecue. >> thank you for joining us. and thanks for this terrific space that you have in this exhibition space and thanks for helping san francisco stay safe. >> good morning, everyone.

foundation for the operation of the club course and golf course for the annual base rent of 85 thousand dollars. >> and we have the director for rec and park. we have this to operate the golden gate park and golf course. a little bit of background the golf course is under a lease for seven years and it's a month to month lease for the past two years while we've impound or gone through the rfp process. when the departments issued the
