The City of Portland is proud to honor the volunteers who have commited themselves to be a part of the soulution when emergencies strike. Neighborhood Emergency Teams (NETs) are staffed by local volunteers, all over the city of Portland, to assist Emergency Responders, such as the Fire Bureau and Paramedics, in the event of an emergency.
Listen to Portland Prepared to hear about the roles these volunteers play and how you can become a part of these emergency volunteer teams.
The name doesn't quite do it justice. It's not just for Portland, is it?
Everyone can stand to be a little more prepared in the event of an emergency. Emergencies are everywhere, after all. There are floods and fires and storms a'pleanty in the region and Portland is just one city in the middle of it all. We do have a couple of things going for us, though. We have KBOO and we have the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management. Teaming together, the PBEM will utilize KBOO to inform the citizens of the region in the event of any emergencies or 'Events of Note' that you should be aware of.
