Info-Hubs are emergency-communication gathering sites for neighbors during a disaster. Their purpose is to help the community by relaying information and updates regarding available resources.

This Saturday, Oct. 31, the Sammamish Citizen Corps will be exercising its Info-Hub program at the following sites:

9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

  • East Sammamish Park
  • Ebright Creek Park
  • Roundabout at 244th and Main
  • Beaver Lake Park Ballfield

9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

  • Summer Ridge Park
  • Highland Creek Commons Area
  • Klahanie Office (near Lakeside Pool)

The Eastside Fire and Rescue mobile command post (COM 80) will be set up at City Hall between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Residents are welcome to drop by at all locations to ask questions and observe.

The goal for this new Info-Hub program is to establish 20 hub locations inside the city. If you would like to volunteer for this program, please come by any of the hubs listed above to sign up or obtain more information. Residents are also encouraged to attend a debrief meeting that will be held at Fire Station 82 (1851 228th Ave. N.E.) at 1:30 p.m., just after the exercise.
