Anyone living or working within South Burlingame is welcome to join us.
We are the South Burlingame Neighborhood Emergency Team (NET), and we’re a group of your neighbors trained by the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management and Portland Fire & Rescue to assist our community in the event of disaster. Our goal is to be an asset to the community during a time of crisis. We’re busy working with the South Burlingame Disaster Preparedness Team to hold block parties, developing a neighborhood / business emergency preparedness program, and creating a neighborhood emergency medical supply storage program. Your contribution to these and other projects is welcome and needed. Click on the camera icons below to see photos of our team in action.
