As thousands flock to The City to enjoy Fleet Week, the San Francisco Office of Emergency Services and Homeland Security is planning to hold a “safety and preparedness fair” at the west end of Marina Green. Experts will be on hand to talk about preparing a disaster kit, making an emergency plan, pet safety and where to receive further disaster training. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in conjunction with Fleet Week.
The City is accepting applications for its Youth Stewardship Program, which provides children with free environmental classes and service learning projects in city parks. The program, which is open to any youth group in The City, teaches students science, environmental education and local natural and cultural history in an outdoor setting.

The Department of Public Health’s OMI Family Center may find a new home at 1701 Ocean Ave.
Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval has drafted a resolution approving a lease agreement for the family program, which is currently operating out of 1760 Mission St. on a month-to-month basis. The proposed 10-year lease of the 5,000-square-foot building on Ocean Avenue is for $12,100 a month. The family center serves the Oceanview-Merced Heights-Ingleside neighborhood as a walk-in clinic for those with mental health needs.
The Board of Supervisors Budget and Finance Committee will vote on the lease agreement Wednesday, 1 p.m, at City Hall, Room 250.
