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.

                                            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.


12:22am     300 Blk Richland                     Stolen Vehicle
Ingleside Officers Canning and Prieto were on routine patrol, driving on Chenery Street near Miguel, when they spotted an older Honda driving toward them with a driver and passenger. The Honda approached a stop sign at the intersection and stopped fully 20 feet behind the crosswalk. The officers thought that was suspicious and turned around and started following the vehicle. At the next intersection the driver performed the same strange maneuver, stopping a full 20 feet before the intersection and then accelerating forward. The officers followed for a short time and when the driver completely ignored the stop sign at the next intersection, they activated their emergency lights and attempted to stop the driver and his vehicle. By this time the slow speed pursuit had reached the 300 block of Richland where the driver, instead of stopping, drove up on the sidewalk and struck a picket fence, the bumper of a parked car, and then collided head-on with a telephone pole. Officers Canning and Prieto called for backup and then exited their patrol car and ordered the driver and passenger out of the vehicle. Officers Khan and Ocreto arrived on scene and placed the driver in handcuffs. A search of his clothing revealed a glass pipe used to smoke narcotics. A computer check revealed the Honda was reported stolen. Further checks revealed the driver was on probation out of San Mateo County for receiving stolen property and for car theft. He was taken to Ingleside Station and booked for car theft and several violations of the vehicle code. Report number: 140920021

2:00am       Unit Blk Ney                            Theft
An alert citizen called dispatch about an individual peering into parked cars. Ingleside Officers Casey and Hauscarriague arrived and spotted a man leaning inside the open door of a parked Scion. When the suspect saw the officers he quickly exited the Scion and began walking away. Casey and Hauscarriague ordered him to stop and he complied. He was placed in handcuffs and a search of his clothing revealed a black wallet which had documents belonging to the owner of the Scion. The officers also discovered shaved keys used to enter and steal vehicles. A computer search revealed the suspect was on active probation for theft and possession of burglary tools. He was taken to Ingleside Station and booked for the same crimes. Report number: 140932894

Serious Incidents:

1:05pm       Mission/Geneva                      Attempted Robbery
A female pedestrian, in the area of Mission and Geneva Avenue, was the victim of an attack and attempted robbery. She told Officers Tsang and Bernard that she was about to cross the intersection when she was approached by two young suspects. One of the suspects then said, “Give me your money”. The victim responded and told them she would not give them any money. Without warning both suspects began punching the victim in the face. They grabbed her jacket and tried to reach in and grab her belongings but were unsuccessful. Both suspect then fled on foot empty handed. A witness who was waiting at the bus stop looked to see what was going on and observed the victim yelling that she had just been robbed. The witness tried to follow the suspects but lost them in the area of Mission and Rolph Street. Medics responded and transported the victim to a local hospital to be treated. Report Number: 140934072

6:49pm       1500 Blk Valencia                  Robbery
A victim Told Officers Khan and Ocreto that he was walking home from the 24th Street BART when he  felt someone tug on his backpack while on the 1500 block of Valencia Avenue. The unknown suspect then pushed the victim up against a wall and said, “Give me your wallet man!” The victim told the officers he hesitated for a brief second but then saw a second suspect approach and began to pat down his pockets. Fearing for his safety, the victim reached into his pockets and handed over his wallet. Not satisfied, the second suspect reached into the victim’s pocket and took his Apple Iphone as well. Both suspects then fled the area on foot. The victim was not injured and the loss was a wallet, cash, driver’s license, credit cards and the Iphone. Report Number: 140935315
