As some of you know … I am currently taking NERT (Neighborhood Emergency Response Training) with the San Francisco Fire Department. They are going to offer another course starting soon right in our very own uHood! The class prepares you to be a emergency responder alongside the fire department in the case of a major disaster (think earthquake). There are six three hour sessions taught by firefighters. I have found the course really interesting thus far.

And when you graduate from NERT you get your own helmet and orange vest. I know you all will be very jealous. And yes – you can all just come to my house when the big earthquake comes. We all know that was your plan anyways, Now I will be better prepared!
