South Waterfront

The South Waterfront Neighborhood Emergency Team (NET) is a trained volunteer arm of the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management (PBEM), responsible for providing emergency assistance to save lives and property in its assigned area when deployed by PBEM, until the arrival of professional responders. This NET covers the area from the Ross Island Bridge at the north to and including the south side of Bancroft on the South, and from Interstate 5 on the west to the Willamette River on the east.


We meet the first Thursday of every month at 7pm. The location changes each month, so please consult the NET Team Meetings calendar for location details. All are welcome – you don’t need to be a trained NET volunteer to attend.
