Need to find something quickly?
For those who have visited our website previously, you’ll find our earlier updates on the Past Activities & Accomplishments page, mostly organized by year. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, please get in touch! Some things might have gone missing during the site migration, or just may not be uploaded yet.
Links that take you off our site open in a new window. Links within our site open in the current window, so you’ll need to use the back button.
We’ve created several printable maps of the West Seattle emergency communication hubs, as well as other useful documents; you can print them on standard letter (8.5 x 11 inch) paper unless otherwise noted. Most materials on our site are in .jpg or in Adobe Acrobat .pdf file format. You can get a free .pdf reader from Adobe’s website if you need one. Note that many of these files are larger than 1 MB, so may take awhile to download depending on your connection speed.
