GET THE FACTS ON MEASURE T
The Time for a Safety Upgrade is NOW
Measure T Will Help Rebuild San Jose's Vital Infrastructure to Make Us Safer
How? By investing in disaster preparedness, public safety and infrastructure improvements.
Whether fire emergency, earthquakes or flood, Measure T will ensure San Jose is ready to keep our residents safe.
Decades of underinvestment in deteriorating streets, bridges and critical public safety facilities have undermined our daily emergency response, and made us more vulnerable to inevitable natural disasters.
We can change that – and save lives – by voting for Measure T.
According to San Jose Police Chief Eddie Garcia, “We’re successfully adding more police officers and firefighters, but we must upgrade our 911 communications facilities to improve fire, police, and paramedic response to emergencies, rebuild police training facilities and crumbling fire stations, and upgrade our emergency operations center to better coordinate our response.”
Measure T Prepares Us for Fires, Earthquakes, Floods and Other Disasters By:
Upgrading our 911 communications facilities to improve fire, police and paramedic responses
Rebuilding police training facilities & repairing crumbling fire stations
Replacing deteriorating, earthquake-vulnerable bridges
Upgrading our emergency operations center to better coordinate our response
Restoring safe locations for emergency food and shelter for displaced families
Rebuilding parts of our 70-year-old storm sewer system to prevent flooding & avoid polluting our creeks, Bay and drinking water
Preserving natural open space to protect groundwater supplies from contamination & reduce our vulnerability to wildfires
Making our daily driving safer by fixing potholes & repaving deteriorating roads that cause accidents
Mayor Sam Liccardo, the League of Women Voters, the Sierra Club, former Mayors Tom McEnery and Chuck Reed, public safety, labor and business leaders, the entire San Jose City Council, the La Raza Roundtable, and community leaders citywide to urge you to vote “Yes” on Measure T.
