If you happen to be in West Seattle, the place to go is to the nearest Emergency Communication Hub!
Do you know about the West Seattle Emergency Communication Hubs?
If not, you’ve come to the right place! The hubs are our designated emergency community gathering sites. Learn more about them in the About the Hubs section. We’ve created an interactive online Google map as well as a printable map showing their locations.
