The San Francisco Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) is free training from the San Francisco Fire Department in how to help yourself and your neighbors prepare for and respond to a disaster by working together. The 20-hour training, taught by First Responders, includes personal preparedness, light search and rescue, disaster medicine, shutting off your utilities, and how to participate as a member of a neighborhood response team.  NERT also offers continuing training for graduates and activities that support building robust neighborhood teams.  For more information, visit the NERT website at http://sfgov.org//sffdnert, or contact Lt. Erica Arteseros at (415)970-2022 or sffdnert@sfgov.org

Are you someone who is interested in disaster preparedness and wants to help out your community while working hand in hand with law enforcement? Then the ALERT program is for you!    
                                            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 www.sfgov.org/sfnert
2. Once NERT certified, forward a copy of your NERT ID card to the ALERT program. sfpdalert@sfov.org
3. After clearing a basic background check the individual is eligible to register for ALERT training.


12:40pm     Unit Blk Argonaut                  Robbery/Assault
A tow truck driver doing his job was the victim of a brutal attack. The driver told Officers Connell, Deidrick and Hornstein that he was in the process of towing a Silver Toyota car for being parked in a Red tow-away zone, when the supposed owner came outside and confronted him. The “owner” asked the driver repeatedly to release the car. The tow truck driver was inclined to release the car and only needed to see some identification to prove the car belonged to him. The suspect refused to show his identification. Not able to release the car, the tow truck driver proceeded to jump back into his truck ready to drive off when suddenly, the suspect approached him and began punching the victim numerous times through the open car window. Unable to close the window, the tow truck driver jumped out of the truck in an attempt to get away from the suspect. The suspect chased the victim around the truck several times before the driver jumped back in. The victim tried calling for help using his cell phone but the suspect came around once again and ripped the cell phone from the victim’s hands and fled the scene. The officers searched the area and located the suspect around the corner. He was immediately taken into custody. Medics responded and treated the tow truck driver at the scene. The suspect was charged with robbery, aggravated assault and vandalism. Report Number: 140763025

5:51pm       Mission/Admiral                     Warrant Arrest/Drugs
Officers Padilla, Seavey, Barajas and Sgt Alvarez were on patrol cruising along Mission Street when they spotted an individual, whom they knew to have a suspended license, driving a vehicle in the opposite direction. The officers kept an eye on the driver as he pulled over and parked illegally in a crosswalk. Moments later, the driver was joined by a second individual who jumped in the front passenger seat. The driver then attempted to drive away when the officers decided to stop him and have a few words with him. The officers ran a computer check and found out that the passenger had one outstanding felony warrant and one misdemeanor warrant for his arrest. After placing him in custody they searched him and found a small amount of methamphetamine hidden inside one of his socks. He was transported and booked on the narcotics possession and warrants. The driver was released after a friend with a valid driver’s license showed up to drive the car from the scene. Report Number: 140764211
