Organizer SFFD Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT)

Organizer of NERT Training Interest 2021

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.
