BOMA San Francisco Members:
The San Francisco Fire Department's Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) is holding a FREE disaster preparedness training in the Financial District on August 1st and 8th 2012 (details below). BOMA San Francisco Emergency Preparedness Committee members participate in the NERT program and have been working with the intrepid Lt. Erica Arteseros, NERT Program Coordinator, on establishing a NERT for the Financial District in San Francisco in the future. The upcoming training are good first step in realizing that goal and BOMA San Francisco members should take full advantage of this unique opportunity to learn what individuals can do in an emergency situation.
