A Message from the Public Utilities Commission:

“A Call to Conserve Water”

We didn’t get enough rain or snow this winter – plain and simple. The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) is officially asking all customers to voluntarily reduce water use by 10%.

Conservation is easy; turn off the faucet while brushing teeth or soaping hands; shorten shower time; install water-efficient showerheads and faucet aerators; replace older toilets and clothes washers with new water-efficient models; and, fix leaks.  Please visit for more information. The SFPUC offers an array of conservation assistance including free water-saving devices, free Water-Wise evaluations for homes, apartment buildings and businesses and rebates for water-efficient toilets and clothes washers.

Everyone needs to do their part to help us stretch our limited Hetch Hetchy Water Supplies. Conserve today and save for tomorrow.

                                            What is the A.L.E.R.T. Program?

The San Francisco Police Department has developed a volunteer citizen disaster preparedness program. The Auxiliary Law Enforcement Response Team (ALERT) is modeled after and works in partnership with the San Francisco Fire Department's Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT). The ALERT program will train members of the public to assist law enforcement in essential tasks after a major disaster. Such tasks may include: traffic control, foot patrol of business and residential areas, and reporting criminal activity. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and live, work, or attend high school in San Francisco.

Three steps to becoming an
A.L.E.R.T. volunteer:
1. Complete NERT training and receive certification. To register for NERT training courses please visit
2. Once NERT certified, forward a copy of your NERT ID card to the ALERT program.
3. After clearing a basic background check the individual is eligible to register for ALERT training.

Ingleside Officers Canning and Cabillo, while on patrol, noticed a late model Cadillac driving in the opposite direction without a front license plate. The officers decided to turn around and advise the driver that he/she needed a front plate. They stopped the vehicle and questioned the driver who was contemplating purchasing the Cadillac.  There was one problem. The driver was unlicensed. She was asked to exit the car along with the front seat passenger and a man in back who said he owned the car. In addition to the missing front license plate, Officer Cabillo noticed that the rear license plate did not belong to the Cadillac. When he questioned the owner, the man said he had just purchased the car and had no idea that the plate didn’t match the vehicle. But what concerned officer Cabillo more was the bulge in his jacket pocket. Officer Cabillo felt the outside of the pocket and immediately knew it was a firearm. He placed the suspect in handcuffs and removed a pistol that turned out to be registered to a Southern California man who had died several years ago. The man was taken to Ingleside Station and booked for illegal possession of a firearm. The vehicle was Cadillac was towed and the driver was cited for operating a vehicle without a valid license.
