Volunteer to be a Neighborhood Emergency Team (NET) Member

Anyone who lives or works in Portland can take NET training. Over 2,800 volunteers have completed basic training. Join them today.
  1. Complete the registration form

    When you complete this step, you will be added to the NET database as an "Applicant" to the program. You will also receive NET orientation information via email, which includes a link to this NET Applicant checklist. This is also an excellent time to review the Volunteer orientation guide:

  2. Complete the preparedness video training and pass the quiz

    The Online Preparedness Training is a series of 17 videos on basic preparedness (all together, they add up to about two hours of viewing time).

    Once you have finished watching the videos, take a brief quiz. Passing the quiz is a prerequisite for the Basic NET training class; once you pass it, you are cleared to take a Basic NET class.

  3. Sign up for basic NET training

    After passing the quiz, the NET Coordinator will add you to the list of Applicants eligible for Basic NET Training. You will receive emails about available Basic training opportunities.

    Basic NET training is about 28 hours and is most often completed over the course of three long Saturday sessions.
