An Info Hub is one in a network of emergency communications sites set up to provide residents with a place to obtain and share information in case of an emergency situation.
Info Hub groups meet for training and practice four times a year, any time there is a fifth Saturday in any given month. The next Info Hub session is at 9:30 a.m. Nov. 29 at local Info Hubs. A post-drill debriefing is planned for 10:30 a.m. that same day at Fire Station 82, 1851 228th Ave. N.E.
