Catastrophic incident response drills commemorating the 21st Anniversary of the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake
NERT members from all over San Francisco will meet at staging areas in five different locations in the City on October 15th to put their training into action in this three-hour drill. NERT volunteers at each location have planned their drill activities, which may include practicing search and rescue techniques, triaging injured victims, setting up staging areas, and other essential disaster response skills. NERT has held annual Citywide drills since 1992. Between 200 and 300 volunteers
participate each year. Since the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, NERT has trained over 21,000 civilians to assist the San Francisco Fire Department after a severe earthquake or other major emergency by taking care of themselves, their families, and their neighbors.
