County Styrofoam ban begins
Styrofoam foodcontainers became athing of the past forcounty-operated foodoutlets the week of July 5,2008 when an ordinance outlawingpolystyrene took effect.The ordinance only governed opera-tions under the county’s control — theSan Mateo Event Center, the SanMateo Medical Center and associatedclinics and all government buildings.The ordinance prohibited countydepartments from buying and usingpolystyrene foam and solid disposablefood service products.

Trauma center talks arise
Before the Palo Alto MedicalFoundation builds its hospital in SanCarlos, a Belmont councilman theweek of July 5, 2008 wanted to makesure it includes plans for the county’sfirst trauma center.Councilman Bill Dickenson askedthe rest of the Belmont City Councilto get behind his idea to push for atrauma center at the new hospital.San Mateo County, with four hospi-tals, does not have a designated trau-ma center for the severely injured.Critical patients are instead rushed toeither Stanford MedicalCenter or San FranciscoGeneral Hospital.Dickenson was not thefirst to suggest San Mateo Countyhave its own trauma center. The ideais raised every few years in variouscities, but county emergency medicalservice officials contend there arenot enough annual trauma cases tosustain such a center — and therequired personnel — within SanMateo County.San Francisco General Hospitalhas served as the Level 1 TraumaCenter for the north county since1998. Stanford Medical Centerserves as a Level 1 Trauma Center forthe south county. Nearly all critical-ly injured patients in San MateoCounty are either rushed via ambu-lance or airlifted to one of the twohospitals.
