After a large-scale disaster, most of us will be relying entirely on our neighbors for help. Professional responders will be overwhelmed and unable to get to us. That’s why Neighborhood Emergency Team (NET) volunteers are meeting throughout Portland to work on grassroots disaster planning. We are trained by the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management (PBEM) and Portland Fire & Rescue to provide emergency disaster assistance within our neighborhoods. We created this website to provide direction for anyone interested in earthquake preparedness. We hope you’ll help us create a more resilient community.
