The San Francisco Medical Events Planning site is currently in development.

While testing the new Medical Planning Process, we have created a Fillable PDF, to receive plans, until the new platform is ready. Please fill out the form, to the best of your ability, and send it to, with all supporting documents and maps. If you have any questions or concerns, you can also use that email address to contact our team. We apologize for any inconvenience, as we continue to improve the process.



Mass Gatherings & Special Events Planning

Special Events and Mass Gatherings within the City and County of San Francisco are required to provide a Special Event Medical Plan to ensure a safer environment for event attendees and participants. Applicants must submit the Special Event Medical Plan to the San Francisco Department of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) for approval.

The EMS Agency Medical Director or designee will review the submitted Special Event Medical Plan within 15 days and respond to the event sponsor, appropriate event collaborators, and the City permitting agency, to identify whether revisions will be necessary, prior to approval of the submitted plan.

Plans that require revision will be returned to the event sponsor with an explanation of the decision, as well as a list of revisions/clarifications that must be addressed, to bring the plan into compliance. The event sponsor may appeal the decision by resubmitting the plan to the EMS Agency Medical Director. A review will occur within 5 days of receipt. The EMS Agency Medical Director’s decision shall be delivered to the event sponsor within 5 business days of the review.
