We’re back!

City-Wide Communications Drill
Saturday, July 29, 2017, 9:00 AM – 12:00 noon.

at the Phinney Neighborhood Center, Phinney Ave. N & N 67th St.

The Emergency Operations Center downtown will be activated for a city-wide drill emphasizing Hub-to-Hub communications. We’ll be on our walkie-talkies, transmitting messages across the sector! You, too, can be a communications hero if you join us at the Phinney Hub!

Our objective is to determine the status of the two hospitals in our area: Swedish Ballard to the south and Northwest Hospital to the north. We’ll make contact with other Hubs and radio operators near those facilities, then spread the information throughout North Seattle.

It should be fun, and you can meet a lot of great people. For more information, email David B. at phinneyhub@gmail.com.
