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.

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.


7:20pm       John F. Shelley/Cambridge          Auto Burglary
A phone with tracking software enabled police to capture a thief who had stolen much more than a phone. The victim, after walking her dog in McLaren Park, was returning to her car when she heard its alarm sounding. As she neared the vehicle, she noticed a man leaving the vehicle and traveling toward the Northern end of the park. The victim saw that her right front passenger window was broken and her tan bag containing her IPhone 5s and a wallet containing credit cards and $180 in cash missing. Fortunately, the phone contained the “Find my IPhone” software and police were able to track the phone to the area near the Jerry Garcia Amphitheatre. Several units went to the area and found the suspect running out of the bushes. He was stopped and arrested and the victim’s purse, phone, and other property were found nearby. The $180 in cash was found in one of his pockets. A computer check revealed the suspect had an extensive criminal history and was on felony probation for burglary. He was taken to Ingleside Station and booked for burglary. Report number: 140709176
