The goal of the NERT program is to help the citizens of San Francisco to be self sufficient in a major disaster situation by developing multi-functional teams, cross trained in basic emergency skills. Through this program, individuals will learn hands-on disaster skills that will help them as members of an emergency response team, preparing them to respond to a personal emergency or as an adjunct to the SFFD response. The 20 hour training consists of six class sessions that are approximately 3 hours each. The NERT Training is free to the public. The San Francisco Fire Department has the following NERT trainings scheduled. You may attend at any location. Enrollment is limited.

Make-ups may be approved. A certificate will be issued. Make-up classes must be completed within 6 months of beginning training. Enrollment must begin by the 2nd session to participate.
