Urban Risk Lab will be showcasing Emergency Preparedness Hub at Market Street Prototyping Festival

Apr 9 -11th., 2015


The Emergency preparedness hub is a novel public disaster preparedness kit designed to build resiliency at the community level. It will act as the urban counterpart to the personal preparedness kit building directly on the SF72 platform for disaster preparedness. It is a prototype for collective emergency response around which off-grid utilities and resources can be managed in the event of an earthquake. This unit also functions as a locus for gathering hyper local narratives that revolve around environmental concerns, resources awareness and community action.
