The expo compliments the drill in by exposing local residents, businesses and employees to the tools that they have at their disposal from NERT (Neighborhood Emergency Response Team) training to emergency preparedness kits. Vendors that will be participating will be private industries and government agencies focused on emergency preparedness and business continuity including:, The American Red Cross; San Francisco Department of Emergency Management, San Francisco Fire Department, NERT ((Neighborhood Emergency Response Teams), Cole Hardware, PG & E/ The Safety Expo will provide information to local residents, businesses and employees about tools that they have at their disposal from NERT training to emergency preparedness kits

ABOUT PIERsafe: In 2006, The Fisherman’s Wharf Community Benefit District and the Fisherman’s Wharf Merchants Association banded together to create the PIERsafe committee to develop an emergency preparedness and response plan for the community. The PIERsafe committee also works with the San Francisco Fire Department in providing Neighborhood Emergency Response Training sessions especially designed for the business owners, merchants and residents of the Fisherman’s Wharf. The PIERsafe committee meets on the first Wednesday of each month in Scoma’s Restaurant at 9am.
