September 24, 10 a.m. to noon, St. Stephens Church

LEAP (Laurelhurst Emergency Action Plan) has prepared the neighborhood to cope with a major disaster by creating an Emergency Communications HUB. Drop by LEAP’s open house where four tents will be set up on the lawn to demonstrate how the HUB will function as a central gathering place to give and receive information and support following the loss of all normal methods of communicating.
Volunteers with LEAP will demonstrate how the HUB operates, and informational brochures on preparing for an earthquake will be available. Knowing that COVID risks still exist, wearing a mask will be optional, but encouraged.
