Road ID

inspired by Kids Road ID

The Wrist Road ID Slim or Foot ID is a simple perfectly low-tech Kids ID Bracelet ($30USD). If your child is ever lost or in an accident, your emergency contact information is immediately available to teachers or first responders. Road ID has been in business since 1999, and is made in the USA. Parents feel better using Road ID during field trips, family vacations and especially at amusement parks.

 

Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) Training Program

inspired by The SF Fire Department N.E.R.T. Training

The underlying premise is that a major disaster will overwhelm first responders leaving many San Francisco citizens on their own for the first 72 hours or longer after the emergency. The Neighborhood Emergency Response Team Training Program (NERT) goal is to teach as many San Franciscan’s as possible that, with basic training, they can make a difference in the lives of their families and others when, not if, they are affected by a disaster large or small.
