Description

Pierce County Neighborhood Emergency Teams (PC-NET) is a neighborhood-oriented approach to emergency preparedness and homeland security.

Major disasters stretch emergency resources to their limits. It is estimated that emergency services will be unable to respond to most calls during the first 72 hours following a major disaster. Recent events have also taught us that individuals are the first lines of defense when it comes to our nation's homeland security. It's time to get to know our neighbors and make our hometowns secure. If individuals and their neighborhoods are prepared to mutually assist each other, lives can be saved, property can be spared, and emergency services can be freed to respond to the most devastated areas. This will be accomplished by organizing block groups into a variety of disaster response teams, each of which has a simple one-page list that clearly outlines necessary tasks. No special skills or equipment are required to participate - and only a minimal time commitment is needed.
