Emergency Preparedness in the Pearl District

There are a number of emergency preparedness initiatives underway in the Pearl District neighborhood:


  • The Pearl District Neighborhood Association (PDNA) has established an Emergency Preparedness (E-Prep) Committee.
  • A number of the homeowner associations (HOAs) for residential condominium buildings in the Pearl District have safety committees or emergency preparedness committees that have adopted emergency preparedness plans.
  • The City of Portland’s Bureau of Emergency Management (PBEM) sponsors a Neighborhood Emergency Team (NET) in the Pearl District.


The PDNA E-Prep Committee and the Pearl District NET are working together to coordinate neighborhood preparedness with emergency response activities.
