14 volunteers handed out 150 copies of the Pet Emergency Preparation materials, 425 of our Preparedness Promise handouts, and lots of other materials. We had great conversations with our neighbors about things they do to be prepared. Some are individualists, some have teamed together with neighbors and taken SNAP to a whole new level! We got some great new ideas, we got 60 people interested in being volunteers for the emergency communications hubs, and 3 people new to Seattle learned that yes indeed, we have earthquakes here and that they should drop, cover and hold!
What is an emergency communications hub? Hubs are volunteer run in our communities, and they communicate through the HAM network, to the Seattle Emergency Operations Center.
A picture is worth a thousand words, and in this case we have some videos:
