On July 29, our local Community Emergency Communications Hub volunteers will join a citywide drill to practice for a major earthquake. A Community Emergency Communications Hub is a pre-determined location where neighbors can gather in an emergency and share information and resources. In our Whittier Heights neighborhood, the hub is right at Kirke Park.
Communications hub volunteers are trained with additional skills and can collect information on local situations, needs, and resources in the event of an emergency. They can relay information between Hubs, the Auxiliary Communications Service, or other locations so that it reaches those in need.
If you’d like to observe the drill, it is a free event at Kirke Park starting at 9 am. For more information, visit: http://seattleemergencyhubs.org/
We just received a large shipment of flags and will start adding them to these requested intersections: 10th/80th, 6th/80th, 21st/80th, 73rd/3rd, 78th/3rd, 65th/14th, 8th/77th, 58th/8th.
Please post any requests for additional intersections or if you would like to sponsor an intersection (monitor for missing flags and supply them as needed). Thank you, neighbors!
