    Our Guiding Statement

    Sunnyside Prepared helps residents educate each other about preparing their families and neighbors to care for themselves during an emergency, ranging from power outages to a major earthquake. The committee collaborates closely with the Sunnyside NET (Neighborhood Emergency Team), whose members have been trained and background-checked by PBEM (Portland Bureau of Emergency Management) and Portland Fire & Rescue.

    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.
