Deployment Exercise

Next Citywide Deployment Exercise will be held
on November 7, 2021

Several times each year, Portland NETs participate in a Citywide Deployment Exercise. This helps us improve our skills, make important revisions to our Operations & Communications Plans, and inform our training plans. The next Citywide Deployment Exercise will be held on Sunday, November 7, 2021 from 1 to 4 pm using Zoom and Amateur Radio.  Each participating team will be allocated a separate Zoom room.  Contact your NET Team Leader (TL) for more information or you can email NETDeploymentExercise@gmail.com.

  • Team Registration Form (no longer available as team registration has closed)
  • Individual Registration Form (You can and should register regardless of whether your team has registered.  The deadline is October 22, 2021.)

This exercise is being created and orchestrated by NET volunteers. If you have questions or suggestions, or if you’d like to be part of the next planning committee, email NETDeploymentExercise@gmail.com.
