September is National Preparedness Month (NPM), and the theme for this year is: "Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare".  There are also weekly themes, so each week we'll be sharing tips and information concerning the following on our Facebook and Twitter pages (be sure to Like and Follow us):

Week 1 - How to...Reconnect with Family After a Disaster
Week 2 - Know How to Plan for Specific Needs Before a Disaster (youth and children, business, organizations, those with disabilities, pets, etc.)
Week 3 - How to...Build An Emergency Kit
Week 4 & 5 - How to...Practice for an Emergency

For more details about National Preparedness Month please visit: www.ready.gov/september or @Readygov on Twitter.  And if you haven't already signed up to receive text alerts during an emergency from the City, please do so today at SMCAlert.info.  The Director of Emergency Services, Randy Breault, will also be providing the City Council with a presentation about National Preparedness Month at the September 2, 2014 Council Meeting.  Last weekend's earthquake in Napa makes this all the more timely, as we clearly saw it is not a matter of "if", it is a matter of "when" a disaster will strike!

Facelifts Around Town

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE Monday, August 25, 11:22am - Both the Fire Station re-painting and the corner of Lake/Glen Park Way re-landscaping were completed late last week.  Here are the "after" photos!

* * * * *

There are a couple spots in town that will undergoing a facelift starting early next week!  The Public Works Building and Grounds Team has scheduled the prep work for painting Station 81 (pictured right) to begin on Tuesday, August 12th.  This was one of the Capital Improvement Projects that the Council approved with the 2014-15 city budget.  The plan is to pressure wash the building on Tuesday and let it dry for a day or two, depending on the weather.  It should take about 4 days to complete after that.  We'll post an "after" pic once the re-painting has been completed.

On Monday, August 11th, landscape improvements at the Lake St. Pump Station (pictured below) are scheduled to begin.  Most of the current plants and trees will be pruned back, with new drought-tolerant plants being added to provide better screening and an overall

better appearance of the Lake St. and Glen Park Way corner.  The contractor who will be performing the work, Loral Landscaping, met with the neighbors on Lake St. who got to review the landscaping plan and provide input.  An "after" pic will also be added once the landscaping work has been completed.

Leash Law Enforced

Printer-friendly version

At the January 13, 2014 City Council meeting, the Police Chief gave an overview of the City's Leash Law.  As a reminder, the Brisbane Police Department enforces leash law violations under the Brisbane Municipal Code, section 6.04.070 which states that no owner shall "allow an animal to be upon any public street, sidewalk, park, school ground, any public property, or upon any enclosed premises in this jurisdiction unless the animal is...under the control of the owner by...a substantial chain, lead rope, or leash, which chain, lead rope, or leash shall be continuously held by some competent person capable of controlling such animal."  Anyone violating this section of the City's Municipal Code will be issued a $100.00 administrative citation for the first offense, with much steeper fines for repeat offenses.  If you see anyone violating the City's Leash Law, please contact the Brisbane Police Department right away by calling (415) 467-1212 so that the officer can attempt to contain the dog, contact the owner, and when necessary, contact the Peninsula Humane Society for assistance.

West Nile Virus Update

Printer-friendly version

Update Friday, 8/22, 11:16am - At last night's Council meeting, a timely presentation on West Nile Virus was given by Theresa Shelton, a vector ecologist from San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control Distict (segment begins at 12:30).  She stressed the importance of reporting all dead birds and squirrels to the CA Dept. of Public Health West Nile Virus and Dead Bird Hotline by calling (877) 968-BIRD (2473) or online at www.westnile.ca.gov.

* * * * *

Through SMCAlert, the City became aware today about a pool of mosquitoes and a dead bird found at Clay Park in South San Francisco.  Both the pool of mosquitoes and bird tested positive for the West Nile Virus.

San Mateo County Mosquito & Vector Control is planning to fog a ½ mile radius surrounding the location where the mosquito pool and bird were found.  Areas surrounding Clay Park in South San Francisco, Colma, and Daly City are included in the fogging treatment plan.

The fogging will take place between the hours of 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM beginning Thursday (8/21) evening into Friday (8/22) morning.

Residents with questions can call the District at (650) 344-8592 Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.

To prevent mosquito bites and breeding, the San Mateo County Mosquito Abatement District reminds the public to remember the “Three Ds” drain standing water because that is where mosquitoes lay eggs; wear proper clothing and repellent during dawn and dusk when mosquitoes bite; and apply insect repellent containing DEET, picaradin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR3535.

If you or someone you know are experiencing symptoms of the West Nile Virus (fever, headache, fatigue, sometimes a skin rash, swollen lymph glands and eye pain), please contact your local physician and schedule to get tested for the virus immediately.
