Sunnyside Prepared - Be prepared, not scared!Portland NET logo

Sunnyside Prepared

A committee of the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association

Our Guiding Statement

Sunnyside Prepared helps residents educate each other about preparing their families and neighbors to care for themselves after a disaster, ranging from power outages to a major earthquake. To that end, the committee collaborates closely with the Sunnyside NET (Neighborhood Emergency Team), whose members have been trained and vetted by PBEM (Portland Bureau of Emergency Management).

Our collective goal is to help each other help ourselves, because history has proven repeatedly that in a crisis our neighbors are our most important “first responders.” All Sunnyside residents are welcome to participate in whatever capacity they are able and willing.
