Get Ready

The Portland Bureau of Emergency Management (PBEM) and Piedmont NET have a lot of information to help you and your family prepare for any disaster that might affect the Piedmont neighborhood.  

The links below provide access to PBEM, American Red Cross and other preparedness resources.  Some links are to PDF format files which you can download and print out.  Links marked with will take you offsite to the website and page where that resource can found.  Your browser will open a new window, but will leave the Piedmont NET website window open so that you can return easily.
