Neighborhood Emergency Team (NET) Training

If you live or work within walking proximity to TIS during the school day, and are not already a trained first responder, we encourage you to become a NET.  

Neighborhood Emergency Teams (NETs) are Portland residents trained by PBEM and Portland Fire & Rescue to provide emergency disaster assistance within their own neighborhoods. NET members are trained to save lives and property until professional responders can arrive. These volunteers are specially trained to help others without putting themselves in harm’s way.

There are still seats available for the Basic NET training class beginning on May 14. To register, go here

If you have questions about joining a NET, please feel free to contact Kat Simons (NET member) kats@intlschool.org Already a NET? Please let Kat know that, too!
