About the PC-NET Program
Pierce County Neighborhood Emergency Teams (PC-NET) provides neighbors with the knowledge and tools necessary to work together for an effective response following emergencies and disasters. Professional responders will not be available to assist you after a major disaster—you become the first responder. If individuals and their neighbors are prepared to mutually assist one another, lives can be saved and property can be spared. This program teaches neighborhoods how to respond to disasters through a variety of training modules taught by your local PC-NET coordinators, local emergency responders, and your appointed neighborhood block coordinator(s). 

Neighborhoods interested in starting a PC-NET will begin with the training outlined in PHASE I. Following the completion of PHASE I, neighborhoods will have the opportunity to further participate in PHASE II and PHASE III—neighborhoods choose their level of participation. PC -NET is sponsored by Pierce County Department of Emergency Management and is free of charge.
