City-Wide Emergency Communication Hub Field Exercise

Message from your Lake City Emergency Hub Team:

Lake City  Hub, Fred Meyer south parking lot, 13000 Lake City Way NE

Please join the Lake City Hub Team at the 2018 City-Wide Emergency Communication Hub Field Exercise this coming Saturday, April 28, 9-11:30 am at Lake City Fred Meyer in the SE corner of the lower parking. This exercise is a total failure of the Western WA power grid—cause unknown and resolution time not estimated.

We really need you to volunteer as a Hub Team member or to act out brief scripts of people (1) having information to share (for example, The ABC Store on Lake City Way is offering generator power to people needing to charge medical equipment); (2) needing something (for example, What pharmacies are open to fill my Dad’s insulin prescription?), and/or (3) offering a resource (for example, I can stay to help with Japanese interpretation). Those scripts will help us practice meeting local needs and matching them with local resources. Or simply stop by to learn about the Hub and some strategies for emergency preparedness—how-to build an emergency kit, how-to access and purify water, how-to manage sanitation, and how (and when) to control utilities.
