As we focus on this tragedy, it is important to also remember our first responders. The Pacifica Firefighters and Pacifica Police along with other Pacifica City staff have been among the many who have once again demonstrated their tireless dedication to the well-being of our communities. Participating on the frontlines and in the Command Center, they worked through the night. Please join us in offering our deepest gratitude and heart felt appreciation for their efforts. May our prayers for their safety always be answered.
Finally, this disaster reminds us all that we can never be too prepared. "Day" in San Mateo County is September 18th at , 10 AM to 2 PM. Admission is free. Come prepare your family for fire, earthquakes, and floods. Prepare your , learn first aid and CPR, put together your emergency kits, and more. Spend time with staff from the from San Mateo County and many first responders. Then, do what we all put off - get prepared! And, let's hope we never need those preparations but are very thankful we have them.
