San Francisco Fire Department NERT Training
My name is Erica and I am the current program coordinator for NERT, the Neighborhood Emergency Response Team. This program provides instructor lead classroom training with hands on components included to prepare San Francisco for a disaster no matter how big or small. Earthquake? Power Outage? Flooding on Shotwell Street? This all hazards approach begins with caring for oneself and family and includes training to become a volunteer emergency responder in your neighborhood.
I am writing to request your assistance to get the word out about this free training opportunity. We do not have an advertising budget and rely on word of mouth to spread this important information. We are no w celebrating 20 years of consistent emergency response team training and I still often meet people who are not aware of this opportunity.
NERT training is coming to an area near you, however I am including the additional classes that have been confirmed so people can find a class that meets their scheduling needs. People can join their neighborhood team upon completion of the training. Participants should plan to attend all sessions of the training to gain the full scope and benefit. New students may begin no later than the 2nd week of a six week class and must begin on the 1st day of a two day intensive class.
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide in telling people about NERT training.
