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:
