Welcome to Centennial NET! Neighborhood Emergency Teams (NETs) are Portland residents trained by Portland Bureau of Emergency Management and Portland Fire & Rescue to provide emergency disaster assistance within their own neighborhoods. In Centennial, we implement a community resilience approach to preparedness and response.


We are a new team and are still pinning down a regular meeting schedule. Please let us know if there are times/days that work best for you. We meet once a month, and welcome all attendees!

Also, once each quarter, we hold a joint meeting with other East County teams. Those meetings are held on the first Thursday of January, April, July and October from 6:30-8:30PM These meetings are currently held via Zoom due to COVID-19. The other teams are:

  • Argay-Parkrose
  • Hazelwood-Mill Park
  • Powellhurst-Gilbert
  • Taborvilla
  • Rocky Butte West
  • Lents

You do not need to be a NET member to attend our meetings. Attending is a great way to learn about the Portland NET program and the community. Attending meetings can also lead to being fast tracked into the Basic Training program to become a NET.


Not everyone is able to become a trained NET and/or attend our meetings, but there are many other ways you can contribute.
