Preparedness is a partnership between the City of Seattle, citizens and neighborhoods.
You've got your home and family ready, the car is tricked out with an emergency kit, there's a contact list in everyone's wallet and purse...what's next?
What's next is across the hall, next door and down the street -- connect with your neighbors and neighborhood.
- Community Emergency Hubs
Community Emergency Hubs empower individuals through training, developing connection among neighbors and supporting community response efforts.
- Seattle Neighborhoods Actively Prepare
The city's program to assist residents in their efforts to Get Ready, Get Connected and Get Strong for any potential emergency.
- Seattle Auxilliary Communications Service
