Residents interested in emergency preparedness or community emergency communication hubs are invited to a virtual workshop from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. March 17.

The workshop is a “concise, practical introduction” into what the hubs are and what they are not, according to organizers. Topics will include the mission of the hubs, when they should be activated and outline the different jobs within the hub. Participants will also practice handling issues that neighbors will raise in the event of a disaster. The event is free to everyone.
