What is a HUB?

You’ve probably heard us talking about Emergency Communications HUBs, including the one here in Victory Heights, in the park. Contrary to how it may seem, these are not run by the city but by volunteers just like you and me. The HUB would be opened in case of a citywide emergency (e.g. an earthquake) as a means to disseminate and share information.
