No strangers to natural disasters, San Francisco, Berkeley and Oakland have long been pioneering ways to rebound from earthquakes, floods, droughts and fires. But what does it mean to call ourselves “resilient,” and should we be doing more?  Host David Onek and guests take a look at the innovative ways the Bay Area is adapting not just to survive, but to prosper, in the wake of a natural disaster -- and how preparedness goes beyond a simple earthquake kit.

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the largest relief effort in US history. Tens of thousands of residents at the end of subway lines are still in dire need of help. What role has the government played? What about Occupy Sandy? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. What can we learn from relief efforts in order to prepare for the next earthquake? And what are the best organizations to support? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
