Firefighters Help SE Portland Citizens Prepare for a Disaster


On March 10th, Portland Fire Lieutenants Michael and Matthew Silva, Fire Inspector Alice Johnson, and Engine 9 (Hawthorne) firefighters joined citizens from SE Portland to take part in a neighborhood event to promote community emergency preparedness.

Held at the Sunnyside Environmental School, the Sunnyside Disaster Dinner offered the opportunity to learn about and practice emergency skills and more importantly get to know each other better in the process.

The event was organized by the Sunnyside Environmental School’s PTSA and sponsored by the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association, Sunnyside Methodist Church and the Swap Shop.

Citizens were greeted by free information booths and activities about emergency sanitation, water harvesting and filtration, creating your home emergency kit, and block organizing. 

Don’t worry if you missed the event – check out the links below for further emergency preparedness information and tips!
