Emergency Services Day 
The Rotary Club of San Francisco honors individual members of the San Francisco Police Department, the San Francisco Fire Department, the San Francisco Sheriff Department, and the US Coast Guard. Honorees are selected by their commanding officers for their heroism and dedication. Each honoree receives a plaque and a "night on the town" with a special someone. This special luncheon event has been one of our most popular programs since it began in 1987.
