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.

Heat wave:  Many residents are leaving their windows and doors open in an effort to keep cooler as the temperature increases during these gorgeous sunny days. Be extra careful, especially when you leave your home, paying attention to secure the windows and doors when you leave. Burglars are always looking for the easiest way inside your home. Don’t give them the opportunity for the easy access. Make sure to secure these entry points and leave them locked when you are not around. A third of all the burglaries committed in the Ingleside district during the month of April were due to open garages and unlocked or open windows. Also, remember to keep hydrated with lots of water!!

Muni Related Thefts/Robberies: Commuters who take public transportation have been targeted by cell phone thieves. In the last couple weeks there has been two incidents involving MUNI related thefts and robberies here in the Ingleside District. In one of the cases, witnesses told the officers at the scene that the suspect was watching the victim as she focused only on her smart phone, paying no attention to her surroundings. When the bus stopped, the suspect snatched the phone from her hand and ran off the bus. If you’re not paying attention to your surroundings, you’re wearing a target on your back. Smart phone owners need to be aware that thieves may be watching you and ready to snatch your devices. The following is some common advice to avoid becoming a victim: Always be aware of your surroundings. If the bus is going to stop, stop what you are doing, look up, look around and put your phone down or put it in your pocket. And when the bus is in movement again you can go back to looking at it.
