Photos and highlights from the citywide hub drill on May 17th

We had a great turn-out in West Seattle earlier this month for the citywide emergency communications drill.  On May 17th, we set up two hubs at Ercolini Park, staffed with West Seattle Be Prepared hub volunteers, citizen actors, observers from other neighborhoods and some visiting AmeriCorps/FEMA members.
