We love Portland..
When it comes to being prepared we have some great resources for you..
Of course I think we come in towards the top since we are Portland’s ONLY emergency preparedness store.
But Check this out..
The Portland Bureau Of Emergency Management - has many great resources. http://www.portlandonline.com/oem/
Did you know that if you have a CELL phone that 911 has no way to contact you if there is a chemical spill or police activity near you.. The city of Portland asks that everyone sign up for PublicAlerts.org. this will give them a way to contact you in the event of an emergency.
Our local CERT team is actually called NET (Neighborhood Emergency Response Team) you can find out more about becoming part of our NET Team at :
If you are already a NET team member here is a link to their online portal. http://portlandnetteams.net/
