Free NERT (Disaster Preparedness) Training in South Beach!
|January 9, 2012||Posted by jamie under Public Services||
While we read about earthquakes in Ohio, Virginia, and other spots not accustomed to being prepared for an earthquake, there is really no good excuse that each and everyone of us in San Francisco are not ready for “The Big One.”
The next NERT (Neighborhood Emergency Response Training) class in the South Beach neighborhood starts next week on Tuesday, January 17th between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. at the San Francisco Fire Department’s Headquarters in the Fire Commission room at 698 2nd Street (at Townsend). Please RSVP as instructed on the flyer for the South Beach training if you plan to attend this 6-week series of classes! You can RSVP by phoning 415-970-2024 or registering online or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
I was really impressed and thrilled that about 80 neighbors attended the abbreviated, 2-hour earthquake preparedness training on November 1, 2011 arranged by South Beach NERT Coordinator Gary Pegueros and provided by San Francisco Fire Department Lieutenant Erica Arteseros a few months ago at The Infinity. If you were among the attendees and made sure that you “signed in” so that your attendance can be verified, you will be credited for having taken Class #1 of this 6-class training. When you RSVP, please let them know you attended the November 1st workshop at The Infinity.
