September is National Preparedness Month

September is National Preparedness Month.  The Airport’s Emergency Management Team wants to make sure that everyone knows what to do in the event of an emergency.

An emergency can happen with little to no warning.  Are you and your family prepared?  There are three basic steps for personal preparedness:

  1. Get a kit. Build an emergency kit with supplies for at least three days. Make sure you have food, water, medication and other necessities in your kit for every member of your household, including pets.
  2. Make a plan. Develop a family communication plan. You may not all be in the same place when a disaster strikes so it is important to have contact numbers and meeting places pre-established.
  3. Be Informed. Sign-up for your local emergency alerts.

To sign up for alerts, text AlertSF to 888-777 or visit: www.alertsf.org.  San Mateo County has SMC Alert. You can register at https://hsd.smcsheriff.com/smcalert.   If you live in another county, search for that county alert system. 

In addition to those three steps, there is an abundance of training available to employees better prepare for an emergency. 

  • Airport-Community Emergency Response Team (A-CERT) training is available through the Emergency Management Team. Register for upcoming classes here.   
  • CPR and First Aid Training classes are available every month. To schedule a class, please contact the Safety, Health and Wellness Department at 650.821.5907.
