Creston-Kenilworth Neighborhood Emergency Team

Portland's Neighborhood Emergency Teams (NET's) are trained by the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management and Portland Fire and Rescue to provide emergency assistance after a disaster. NET's also respond to downed power lines, warming & cooling shelters, and many civic events. We are your neighbors. And you can join us as a trained member or as an affiliated volunteer.

Although we are provided with free training, an identification badge, hard hat & safety vest, all other personal gear is paid for by the individual member. However, each team is allowed to create a collective equipment cache, containing larger or more items than can be carried in their individual kits. Examples include search & rescue equipment & extra medical supplies. You can support the development of this cache with a tax-deductible donation.
