Welcome to our ‘blog! We are West Seattle Be Prepared; a community-based, all-volunteer, disaster preparedness effort in Seattle, Washington. Our group includes representatives and community leaders from many of the West Seattle neighborhoods.
Our group has established 13 Emergency Communication Hubs throughout West Seattle. As well, our focus is to provide information, identify resources and needs, and to promote communication regarding emergency preparedness.
We work closely with the Seattle Office of Emergency Management and other Seattle neighborhoods on our preparedness efforts. Seattle now has over 50 hubs.
Visit our website, at http://westseattlebeprepared.org, for more information! Our site includes:
- Interactive maps and other details about the West Seattle Emergency Communication Hubs.
- Information about West Seattle emergency medical and first aid resources.
- Resources – a huge selection of local and regional resources including training information, sources for getting information during an emergency as well as information about emergency planning. We also have great materials for kids, seniors, and neighborhoods.
