The Port of San Francisco's Waterfront Resilience Program (WRP) will take actions to reduce seismic and climate change risks that support a safe, equitable, sustainable, and vibrant waterfront.

The Port manages a diverse maritime, commercial and recreation portfolio and is steward of the Embarcadero Historic District, home to treasured public assets. The waterfront receives more than 24 million visitors annually. The Embarcadero Roadway includes backbone infrastructure owned by the SFPUC, SFMTA, Public Works and private utilities and is vulnerable to near-term risks including flooding near the Embarcadero MUNI tunnel and lateral spreading and subsidence of the roadway and utilities from Fisherman’s Wharf to Oracle Park.  The Port’s Southern Waterfront from Mission Creek to Heron’s Head Park is home to the Port of San Francisco’s maritime industry which provides jobs that are crucial to the long-term economy of the waterfront.

The life safety and emergency risks to the waterfront demand urgent attention. The Port just concluded a Multi-Hazard Risk Assessment (MHRA) to examine the impacts to Port, City, regional and privately-owned assets and infrastructure from a variety of potential seismic and flood events for the 3 miles of Embarcadero Seawall, from Fisherman’s Wharf to Mission Creek. The Port is also working with USACE on a general investigation of flood risks to the Port’s entire 7½ mile jurisdiction (the Flood Study).

Conviction History

As a selected candidate for a job, you will be fingerprinted, and your fingerprints will be sent to the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The resulting report of your conviction history (if any) will be used to determine whether the nature of your conviction (or arrest, in limited circumstances) conflicts with the specific duties and responsibilities of the job for which you are a selected candidate. If a conflict exists, you will be asked to present any evidence of rehabilitation that may mitigate the conflict, except when federal or state regulations bar employment in specific circumstances, such as:

  • Candidates for positions with the Unified School District and the Community College District may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under the California Education Code.
  • Candidates for positions with the Recreation and Park Department may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under California Public Resources Code 5164.

Having a conviction history does not automatically preclude you from a job with the City.

If you are a selected candidate, the hiring department will contact you to schedule a fingerprinting appointment.
