This is a drill of the Neighborhood Team’s Emergency Response. As a volunteer you will be made-up and asked to role-play an earthquake victim. This gives the volunteer emergency responders attending the drill a more realistic triage experience. Check in at the "Victim" table near the school yard entrance. Please wear something comfortable that you don't mind getting dirty. This drill will run through the lunch hour. Lunch will be served at the drill.
You must sign a release of liability waiver to volunteer at this event. If you are under the age of 18, your parent/guardian will need to
co-sign the waiver. Waiver Link: http://bit.ly/1fwIGHq

When & Where
SFFD Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT)
NERT is a community based training program dedicated to a neighbor-helping-neighbor approach. It is beneficial for individuals, neighborhood groups and community-based organizations in San Francisco. Through this program, individuals will learn the basics of personal preparedness and prevention. The training also includes hands-on disaster skills that will help individuals respond to a personal emergency as well as act as members of a neighborhood response team.
A typical NERT volunteer is not one type. The NERT volunteer is anyone who is active and involved in the community--or wants to be. San Francisco is made up of many neighborhoods. We are training to be one ready community when it counts. The Emergency Response is key but the Neighborhood Team comes first.
