EOC-ACS-HUBS Field Exercise/Drill on May 9, 2015 from 5PM-10PM
Locations: West Queen Anne (WQ) Playfield and West Magnolia (WM) Playfield, usually set up on West Side of Magnolia Community Center
The Emergency Operations Center and the Auxiliary Communications Service sponsor this mock exercise for our local communication HUBS and volunteer radio operators.
SCENARIO: 2nd day after initial earthquake with multiple aftershocks triggering landslides, plus windstorm coming in evening.
The purpose of a Hub Communication Site:
provide a safe place; allow public gathering after a disaster; report problems and seek help for issues that you and your neighbors can not manage; volunteer skills, supplies and equipment to help others; communicate by radio with other Hub Sites and the City, if possible; have resources matched and dispatched to reported needs, as available.
The Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS) is a program created by government’s disaster or emergency management office to supplement its emergency communications with unpaid staff. Skilled and dedicated people, licensed and unlicensed, can be recruited to serve in one or more of four categories: administrative, management, technical, and operations.
