Beacon Hill Community Preparedness Event

Posted by: admin

Beacon Emergency Awareness Network (BEAN) hosts  Preparedness Fair.

If you live in Beacon Hill, you know that most of the ways to get on and off the hill are by bridges.  What would you do if those bridges go down in an earthquake?  Would you know how to get information?  Are you prepared to be self sufficient for 5 to 7 days?  If you didn’t know, this event had information for you!  Representatives from the Seattle Office of Emergency Management, the Seattle Emergency Communications Hubs, El Centro de la Raza and the Seattle Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS) were all there to help answer questions about personal and community preparedness.  The Beacon Hill Merchants Association sponsored the event and plans to continue the discussion and establish more Community Hubs on Beacon Hill.  Continue the conversation by contacting Susan Somers at susan@beaconhil​lmerchants.com
