Community Emergency Hubs for Disaster Relief
The Seattle Emergency Hub groups educate and organize people in their neighborhood about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area. Volunteers and community members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
Prior to a disaster, the hub’s responsibility is to aid the City of Seattle in encouraging citizens to be individually and collectively prepared for any disaster. By prior planning, preparation, and practice, volunteer citizens will have the capacity to activate, as soon as possible after a disaster, a network of pre-located neighborhood emergency communications hub sites.
We are a volunteer organization. Many of our Seattle Emergency Hubs have been fortunate to obtain grants and donations to gather and store emergency supplies. read more
