UPDATE Feb 17: you can still start this training course and make up the missed class later — just come to the next class on Thursday Feb 23.

San Francisco’s NERT (Neighborhood Emergency Response Team) program is a great program which teaches neighbors like you to help yourself and others in the event of a major earthquake or catastrophe. You will learn light search and rescue, how to shut off utilities, do triage, and very basic first aid. It’s a fun class, and a great way to meet your neighbors and help your fellow San Franciscans in a disaster.

Sunnyside’s upcoming NERT training course is now scheduled for six sessions: February 16, 23, & March 2, 16, 23, 30. SNA president and firefighter Stephen Martinpinto will be leading the course. There is still time to sign up — here is where to do it:

We have all heard it before — a few gallons of water, a radio, cans of food, and the rest — the things we are supposed to store in event of that earthquake (or other disaster) everyone knows is due in the Bay Area. But there is more to real neighborhood preparedness.

San Francisco’s NERT (Neighborhood Emergency Response Team) program is a great program which teaches neighbors like you to help yourself and others in the event of a major earthquake or catastrophe. You will learn light search and rescue, how to shut off utilities, do triage, and very basic first aid. It’s a fun class, and a great way to meet your neighbors and help your fellow San Franciscans in a disaster.

Sunnyside Neighborhood Association’s president, Stephen Martinpinto is a NERT instructor. He is currently inviting Sunnysiders to let him know if they are interested in becoming part of a future training. Write Steve at sunnyside.president@gmail.com or text him at (760) 271-1877.
