California's Safely Surrendered Baby Law was introduced in 2001, and made into law in 2006. The law has saved the lives of many newborn infants who might otherwise have been abandoned in unsafe locations. Under the law, parents and other persons with lawful custody may safely surrender infants within 72 hours of birth, with no charges filed and no questions asked.
The City is developing a shared service approach for Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) services in partnership with the County’s Office of Emergency Services. The shared services approach ensures the sustainability of the program as the City employs creative approaches to ensure a balanced budget.
The City of Redwood City and City of San Carlos appreciates the community input received so far and information gained will help ensure that the County CERT program serves Redwood City and San Carlos well.
