Emergency Preparedness Resources for Businesses
Inspired by the Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) training this week, below are some resources businesses can use as they make their emergency preparedness plan:

The Wharf By the Numbers
People Counting Devices Track Wharf Footfall
Each month we share our pedestrian counts for the previous month and previous year. April footfall shows a decrease of 3.6 % over the same dates during the previous year.
Stay tuned for more annual comparisons. The FWCBD is using footfall data to help provide valuable information to the City to help advocate for more services for local property owners, merchants and visitors.
