Once you have assigned the roles, the different Hub areas need to be set up.
Each role can focus on setting up their particular area, but some areas are easier than others, so help each other as needed.
Your facility will look different to this, but this diagram gives you an idea of the spaces you might need to find room for....
I ensure the Hub runs smoothly by helping everyone work together.
I keep track of important information coming in and out of the Hub.
I keep the Public Information board up-to-date and tidy.
I meet and greet people coming to the Hub and direct them where to go.
I match people's needs and offers of assistance by using notes on a board.
I create a welcoming comfortable space where people can connect and wait.
I use whatever communications are available to stay in contact with the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC).
I ensure the Hub is safe, clean and has the resources it needs to run.
Set up a noticeboard somewhere near the front to display important information to the community. Ensure the Public Information Board is easy to see. This could be set up outside, or in a window.
Towards the front of the facility, set up display boards marked “Offers” and “Needs”.
Establish a hand washing area. Find or make a toilet facility. Ask neighbouring houses or local businesses to borrow any tools and cleaning materials you need.
