This Saturday, May 11th between 9 and 11 AM community groups and emergency volunteers throughout Seattle will participate in a disaster drill to test neighborhood emergency preparedness. Northeast Seattle’s Hub at Hunter Tree Farm, 7744 35th Ave NE, will be one of the practice sites. Everyone is invited to come out and see what procedures are in place should an earthquake or other emergency occur.
The groups will include amateur radio operators who will practice sending in messages to the City of Seattle Emergency Operations Center. In a real event, the info sent in could be used by City response planners to assess conditions. Other neighborhoods will be activating their Hubs – get the list on the Sustainable NE Seattle page and let your friends know where they can participate.
