On the day of your appointment

These instructions and tips will help make your fingerprinting appointment as seamless and stress-free as possible.

  • Arrival: Be sure to arrive about ten minutes before your appointment. This will give you time to check-in with building security and to arrive to our office on the fourth floor of 1 South Van Ness Ave.
  • Getting to the office: Parking in the downtown area surrounding the 1 South Van Ness Ave. office is very limited. We highly suggest utilizing public transit. We are easily accessible from the Van Ness Muni Metro stop and the Van Ness bus lines. We are also a short walk from the Civic Center BART station.
  • Employee ID Photo: During your visit, we may take your photo for your disaster service worker (DSW) ID (Employee ID). This may happen before or after your fingerprints are rolled.
