Neighborhood Emergency Response Team

Get Prepared. Get Involved!

Thank you for your interest in the San Francisco Fire Department Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT), a community based training program dedicated to a neighbor-helping-neighbor approach.

NERT is a free training program for individuals, neighborhood groups and community-based organizations in San Francisco.  Through this program, individuals will learn the basics of personal preparedness and prevention.  The training also includes hands-on disaster skills that will help individuals respond to a personal emergency as well as act as members of a neighborhood response team. 

San Francisco is made up of many neighborhoods. We are training San Francisco residents to be one ready community when it counts. Together we can create a lifeline between your family and neighbors, and the City's emergency responders.

 We invite you to learn more about the NERT team and how to get involved.
