Hub Drill June 9

On June ​9, from 1 to 3 pm, in coordination with Hubs across the city, we will practice our community’s response to a large disruptive event.  We’re calling this event “Rumble Ready,” but everything we learn would apply to a long-term power outage, as well as an earthquake. We will be showcasing our Hub to the neighborhood, and we need YOU to train with us!


Wedgwood Emergency Hub Drill              

Sunday, June 9th

1-3pm

Hunter Tree Farm Lot (7730 35th Ave NE)


Our practice scenario…  The entire city was shaken by a 6.1 magnitude earthquake along the Seattle Fault Line. It is day #2 of the disaster; communications are down and utilities (water, sewer, natural gas) are non-functional. The Fire Department was able to extinguish most of the fires and City officials are hard at work assessing the damage, deploying their limited assets, and requesting assistance from County, State, and Federal officials.  The first game of the FIFA World Cup is scheduled to begin in 3 days so the city is packed with fans from all over the world.  Because of bridge and road failures, the city has broken into many “islands”.  Cut off from essential services, Hub volunteers (neighbors just like you) are helping their neighbors find and share resources.

This event is our major field exercise for 2024.  We hope to see you there!

GMRS Radio Skills Clinic 

Sunday, Dec 3,  2023  12 - 2pm

University Branch Library (5009 Roosevelt Way NE

GMRS radios are a great tool in an emergency! They have a longer range than family "walkie-talkies" and provide access to emergency response networks. While Ham radio is used to communicate with government agencies, GMRS is used for Hub to Hub contact. A license costs $35 per household and does not require a test. 

Join Seattle Emergency Hub coordinator Ann Forrest to learn about GMRS radios, the repeater system, how to use your radio, and get your new radio programmed.
