Didn’t you feel a strong sense of pride working at San Diego International Airport during the recent wildfires? It’s so fulfilling to be able to work at a place that’s an essential part of this community, connecting us to the world and, in the case of the fires, enabling emergency volunteers to fly into our city. Aside from being thankful for our airport, I continue to be thankful for my Airport Authority teammates. It’s a pretty amazing team!
To be here that week of the fires…hearing the concern everyone showed for each other…witnessing the offers to assist in any way needed…seeing the reduced staff come together and take on new tasks to get things done…you all are just fantastic!
And I can’t help but wonder if there’s a new airport site solution now. As a Goodwill Ambassador, I’m asked a lot of questions about the airport by my family, friends, etc. And a colleague in my community network recently posed this creative question to me: Wouldn’t a new airport along the eastern part of our county, sitting on plenty of pavement, be a perfect buffer against future wildfires? What do you think?
