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, or contact Lt. Erica Arteseros at (415)970-2022 or

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
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.

2:54am       Geneva/Prague                                D.U.I
A weaving vehicle caught the attention of Ingleside Officers Jones and Tsang as the car careened across several westbound lanes of Geneva Avenue. The officers stopped the car and noticed the driver’s face was flushed, eyes were bloodshot, speech thick, and his breath reeked of alcohol. Even more incriminating was the quantity of opened alcoholic beverages strewn in his vehicle’s backseat and center console. When asked for his license, insurance, and registration, the driver provided valid registration and an expired vehicle insurance card. He also told the officers that he never had a driver’s license. He said he only had one beer that evening. He failed a roadside sobriety check and a breathalyzer test revealed a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit. The suspect was booked at the county jail. Report number: 140753139

7:57pm       San Jose/Randall                             D.U.I
A traffic collision resulted in the arrest of a driver of one of the vehicles. Ingleside Officer Canning investigated a rear-end collision involving two vehicles. The driver of the first vehicle told Canning that he stopped at a red light when the second vehicle collided with him from behind. He was injured slightly and later transported to the hospital for a back injury. The second driver showed obvious signs of intoxication and admitted to consuming a six pack of beer prior to the collision. Officer Canning also noticed several empty beer cans in his vehicle. The driver failed a roadside sobriety test. He was transported to Mission Police Station where a breathalyzer test and a blood test were administered. After the test, the suspect was transported to the county jail and booked for DUI. Report number: 140754842

9:48pm       Silver/Mission                                  D.U.I
Ingleside Officer Austin arrested a motorist after the driver almost collided with Officer Austin’s patrol car. Officer Austin was driving westbound on Silver, between Mission and Alemany, when a vehicle, traveling in the opposite direction, drifted over the double yellow lines forcing Officer Austin to suddenly swerve to the right to avoid a collision. Officer Austin turned around and stopped the driver of the car near Silver and Mission Streets. When he approached the vehicle, he found the driver slumped over the steering wheel with a dazed look on his face. His clothing and breath smelled of alcohol. He told the officer that he only had three light beers at a Mission District bar. The officer noticed an open bottle of beer in the vehicle’s cup holder. He was asked to exit his car and perform a field sobriety test. He easily failed the roadside test and was placed under arrest for D.U.I and for driving without a valid operator’s permit. After a blood test at Mission Police Station, he was transported to the County Jail for booking. Report number: 140755157
