7. The SF Fire Department uses 350 wooden ladders
Yup, wooden. As in, flammable. But, thanks to all of our high-voltage overhead wires, those are safer than metal ones. Also, while there are a handful of other fire departments in the US that do the same, the SFFD is the only one that uses custom-built, handcrafted wooden ladders. Of course, this is SF after all. Why wouldn't our fire department use artisan ladders?
8. The median SF resident is 38.5 years old
You're either feeling hella young or reeeallllly old right about now.
9. SF is built on 43 hills
Like, you knew there were a lot of hills in San Francisco, but 43? No wonder we all love Uber so much.
