Emergency Preparedness: What you need to know

November 7th, 2017 by hillaryu

Submitted by Lake City Future First

Are you prepared for an emergency? Do you know how to access water safe to drink or how to manage sanitation? How is your emergency kit looking? Lake City Future First, in partnership with the Lake City Emergency Communication Hub will help you get prepared on Wednesday, November 15th at a free Community Conversation held at the Lake City Community Center, 12531 28th Ave NE, Seattle.

Doors open at 6:30 pm with free food from Villa Verdi (12360 Lake City Way Ne Seattle, WA 98125). At 7:00 pm attendees will learn about the Lake City Emergency Communication Hub from Lake City Hub Captain Sandy Motzer. The Lake City Hub is located at Fred Meyer in the SE corner of the lower parking lot. During a disaster emergency when most forms of communication fail, community members would gather at the Hub to exchange information, needs, and resources in order to help ourselves, knowing it could be days or weeks before City services are available.

Following the Hub presentation attendees will visit three ‘How to’ demonstrations:

  • Purify Water – Lake City Emergency Communication Hub
  • Manage Sanitation – Ann Forrest, Victory Heights Hub Cap
  • Manage Utilities – Matt Auflick, Office of Emergency Management

The Hub will also have an Amateur (Ham) radio display table with information about the importance of Amateur radio in a disaster and how you can obtain a license – Susanna Cunningham, WB7CON, Hub Cap, and Member, Auxiliary Communication Services

Information from the following organizations will also be available to assist with emergency preparedness:

  • SNAP (Seattle Neighborhoods Actively Prepare)/Block Watch
  • American Red Cross, emergency kit preparation
