Hub 201 Training

Join the volunteers of the Wedgwood Emergency Hub as we learn more about how the Hub neighborhood emergency response network works and practice the roles we will need neighborhood volunteers to serve during an emergency, then problem-solve likely scenarios through small group discussion tables.


This indoor “tabletop exercise” is the second in a series of modified drills with increasing complexity in the scenarios we discuss, however no experience is necessary to participate. All are welcome!

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.
