APOLLONIA HELM, Hazardous Materials Specialist III - San Mateo County EH
My name is Apollonia Helm, although most people call me Polly. I work at San Mateo County (SMC) Environmental Health as hazardous materials specialist. Most of my time is spent on regular CUPA program inspections, including hazardous materials business plans, hazardous waste, aboveground storage tanks, and underground storage tanks. I also spend time on compliance assistance projects and the Disaster and Response Team for SMC. This year, a significant amount of time was devoted to COVID-19 and CZU Fire activities. I also participated in the LEPC regional plan work group and the HMBP battery work group, established by the HMBP TAG to look into the questions about the future of battery reporting.
