We did the NERT training a few years ago and it's something every San Franciscan should do.
This coming January, the SFFD is offering FREE NERT training in a two-day intensive program over two weekends.
Bayview Police Station Community Room
201 Williams @ Newhall
Saturdays, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Class Sessions 1, 2 & 3: January 8, 2011
Class Sessions 4, 5 & 6: January 22, 2011
The goal of this program is to help the citizens of San Francisco to be self-sufficient in a major disaster situation by developing multi-functional teams, cross-trained in basic emergency skills. Through this program, individuals will learn how to help themselves and their loved ones prepare for and better respond to a disaster such as earthquake. The training includes preparedness training, as well as hands-on disaster skills.
*Please note that it is very important for participants to attend all session in order to gain the full scope and benefit of the training.
New students may not join after session 2 of the 6-week training, or on day 2 of the intensive sessions.
