Portland NET Teams

Welcome to the Portland Neighborhood Emergency Teams Community Portal

teams

The website is maintained by NET members as a resource for NET members.  

What resources can you find here?

  • A community forum you may use to communicate with your NET Community
  • A Database of information and tools that may support you as a volunteer. 
  • A Map that can help you find your way. 

In the event of a citywide or regional emergency such as a severe winter storm, flood or major earthquake, households need to be prepared to be on their own for at least a week. Neighborhoods need to be prepared for self-sufficiency, too. Volunteer neighborhood rescuers will likely be first on-the-scene when firefighters and police are slowed by impassable streets or overwhelmed by calls for help.

Neighborhood Emergency Teams (NETs) are Portland residents trained by PBEM and Portland Fire & Rescue to provide emergency disaster assistance within their own neighborhoods. NET members are trained to save lives and property until professional responders can arrive. These volunteers are specially trained to help others without putting themselves in harm’s way. NET members are:

  1. Prepared to be self-sufficient for one week during any emergency.
  2. Able to provide emergency assistance to their family and immediate neighbors.
  3. Able to work within an emergency response team to save lives and property in their neighborhood. 
  4. Able to guide untrained volunteers who want to help others during a disaster.

  • Portland Police Active Shooter Drill
    Starts: 10:00 pm
    Ends: April 28, 2014 - 4:00 am
    Description: Portland Police Active Shooter Drill: On Sunday, April 27th at 10 p.m. until Monday, April 28th at 4 a.m. (yes, that time is correct…this is gonna be a nightowl thing) the Portland Police Bureau and Portland Fire Bureau in coordination with TriMet will be conducting an active shooter drill. We are looking for up to 20 volunteers to serve as actors to create a sense of realism for the first responders participating in the exercise. As a volunteer, you will be assigned a specific role, and possibly given moulage (make up) to simulate injuries.

    This is a great opportunity to experience firsthand the demands put upon law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel during a stressful incident, and better understand mass casualty triage, first responder safety and the risks taken to secure a scene and treat/extricate victims.

    If you are interested in volunteering, please contact John Porter at john.porter@chinookgroup.org or (303) 862-7993.
    Date: April 27-28, 2014

    Starts: 6:30 pm
    Ends: April 30, 2014 - 9:00 pm
    Location: Service Employees International Union, 6401 SE Foster Rd, Portland, OR, United States
    Description: Help Friends & Neighbors Get Prepared” (dates and locations below). This will be an interactive training by Alice Busch and Liz Bryant on how to confront one's fears about bringing up disaster preparedness with the unaware, and how to deal with their objections (it won't be that bad, the gov’t will save us, etc.). It will also cover how to do Map Your Neighborhood. It is suitable for NETs and for others who feel they have a good start on their own preparedness. The last 45 minutes will include a break and a presentation by me on NET; obviously, you don’t need to stay for that.
