A Hub is a place for the community to coordinate your efforts to help each other during and after a disaster.
Objectives of the Community Emergency Hub are to:
- Provide information so that your community knows how to help each other and stay safe.
- Understand what is happening.
- Solve problems using what your community has available.
- Provide a safe gathering place for members of the community to support one another.
Providing the community with information helps everyone make informed decisions about how to help themselves, so even if you do not have the capacity to help in a practical way, providing information is a valuable service.
About the Hub Guide
Each Hub has a paper copy of the Hub Guide that is customised for your local Community Emergency Hub and your community. Adapt these ideas to suit the emergency and the facility.
