The Portland Bureau of Emergency Management (PBEM), Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) and the all-volunteer Neighborhood Emergency Team (NET) program have collaborated to install emergency staging area signs throughout the City of Portland. These signs indicate areas where specially trained NET members will provide assistance to displaced residents following a major emergency. Wallace Park is the designated NET area in the Northwest District. The sign in the photo was recently installed at ball field #2 in the northeast corner of the park. The new signs are just one in a series of ongoing emergency preparedness efforts under way in Portland.
