San Francisco International Airport
Terminal 2, SFO EOC
This class will be held at the San Francisco International Airport’s Emergency Operations Center. The Airport EOC is located inside a secured area between Terminal 3 and Terminal 2 on the second level (departure level). Approaching from Terminal 3, walk towards Terminal 2 passing through the corridor connecting the two terminals; turn left as soon as you exit the corridor and look for the red EOC signs. At the EOC entrance, an Airport Emergency Operations and Planning person will open the secured door for you.
If you drive, parking will be validated by the Airport EOC personnel – please bring your parking ticket with you so that it can be processed before you return to your vehicle. From Highway 101 (North or South), take the exit for SFO towards the domestic terminal, and follow the signs for “hourly parking”. Please use the Domestic parking garage, and try to park in area E, as this will put you closest to the EOC.
Please note: if you have FASTRAK you should avoid the FASTRAK lane and cover your FASTRAK device when entering and exiting the garage or you may be automatically charged (this charge can not be refunded).
The Airport is also easily accessed by BART. Transfer from BART to the AirTrain (Red Line), and exit at Terminal 2. Walk through the access tunnel to Terminal 2 (this will put you on the Mezzanine level), go down one level to the Departure level. Walk towards Terminal 3; look for the red EOC signs on your right just before entering the corridor to Terminal 3. At the EOC entrance, an Airport Emergency Operations and Planning person will open the secured door for you.
Each student will receive a course manual, a pen, pencil, highlighter and packet of ICS forms. You may bring a notebook with you, or take notes in the manual, which ever you prefer.
Please note that only bottled water is allowed in the EOC – absolutely no other food or drink are allowed. There is an anteroom just outside the EOC where snacks may be eaten or stored.
