COMMUNITY EMERGENCY HUBS

What is a Community Emergency Hub?
Hub graphic
Community Emergency Hubs are made up of a group of people who agree to meet at a pre-determined locations following a major disaster to share information, resources, problem solve and support each other. Unlike a SNAP neighborhood, Hubs are larger areas that encompass several neighborhoods.

While the Office of Emergency Management supports Community Emergency Hubs, the mission of the Hub is accomplished solely through community volunteers. Currently there are more than 50 Hubs organized throughout the city. Each hub reflects the unique character of the community they serve, and may look different from location to location.
