JOIN OUR TEAM
The Riverdale Neighborhood Emergency Team (NET) includes Riverdale, Riverwood, and Dunthorpe neighborhoods in SW Portland. We welcome anyone interested in emergency preparedness. You need not have completed NET training. Our neighborhood needs you! You likely possess some knowledge, skill, and/or experience that will benefit you in an emergency. Most importantly, you need to prepare your family and loved ones. Then, you can help prepare your neighbors. Visit the Get Ready page of this website to learn how.
A Pacific NW earthquake is inevitable. Although the exact time our Cascadia Subduction Zone will produce a 9.0+ earthquake is not certain, scientists believe it’s overdue. So, we’re wise to prepare by training — learning and practicing steps to take — and closely coordinating with the police and fire services to help during other local emergencies like weather, fire, floods, landslides, and other such threats to life and property.
The Riverdale NET is currently designing its next steps, including calendaring neighborhood meetings and mapping our neighborhood. At this time you’re invited to join us at the joint Riverdale-Tryon Creek NET meetings the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm at Stevenson Elementary School (2627 SW Stephenson St). Please come!
