A Neighborhood Emergency Team (NET) is a group of citizen volunteer emergency workers who have received basic training to work with your neighbors to save lives and property during the first 72 hours of any citywide emergency, when many neighborhoods will be on their own. The skills you’ll learn in the NET training will also help you manage emergencies that you may encounter in daily life.
To become a Portland NET member, you'll need to complete a total of 21 hours of basic training which consists of seven skill-building sessions. Topics covered include disaster preparedness, fire suppression, basic medical triage & operations, light search and rescue, and emergency team operations.
Whatever your background experience and physical abilities may be, the NET in your neighborhood needs you!
