IS/GGH-NERT: The Inner Sunset/Golden Gate Heights Neighborhood Emergency Response Team

We won! $25,000 allocated to NERT

Thanks to all who voted for our funding proposal in San Francisco Supervisor Norman Yee's Participatory Budgeting process! Now comes the fun part -- purchasing and distributing supplies to get our Team and our communities better prepared for a major earthquake.

If you live south of Kirkham between 7th and 9th Avenues or south of Judah between 9th and 19th Avenues to Rivera Street, you may qualify to get free emergency supplies!

We will be distributing to residents of Sup. Yee's district 30 free containers of emergency supplies (medium Recology-size bins on wheels with various supplies). You don't need to be a NERT to get a bin! If you or a neighbor are willing to store a bin of supplies and share with your neighbors when there's a major disaster, and you live in Supervisorial District 7 in the Inner Sunset or Golden Gate Heights, please let us know by registering here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/disaster-supplies-for-district-7-residents-tickets-47047201446 

Another part of the grant involves distributing 50 free go-bags to seniors in our area. You don't have to be a NERT to qualify. If you're a senior who lives in SF District 7 in the Inner Sunset or Golden Gate Heights and you'd like a free go-bag containing some items you may need if you have to leave home quickly in an emergency, please let us know by registering here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/emergency-bags-for-seniors-tickets-47046741069  

Lastly, also let us know if you'd like to join us in a work party at some point to assemble the go-bags and bins of emergency supplies. You can reach us at innersunsetggh.nert@gmail.com. 



Mark your calendars!
Our second-ever NERT neighborhood drill will be held Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018 from 9 am to 1 pm at Independence High School's yard off of 6th Ave. between Irving and Judah. Residents who have taken the Fire Department's NERT training will practice disaster-response skills, meet their Teammates, and be eligible to win raffle prizes! Bring your NERT vest, helmet, go-bag, gloves, comfortable shoes or boots, water, sunscreen, and a radio if you're a Ham operator. Be sure to register so we know you're coming: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/isggh-nert-neighborhood-drill-tickets-46994235022
