When giving their location in relation to the bridge it’s important that the rescuee identify their location as either San Francisco side or San Jose side of the San Mateo Bridge.

In addition, the City is working with the contractor to have colored banners installed at boat ramps to further help rescuees identify their locations. Once the colored banners are installed, a rescuee will be able to share the color(s) of the closest flag(s) to help rescue workers reach them.
