PREPHubs are a new kind of infrastructure designed to increase disaster resilience. Composed of flexible kit of parts, each component serves the community in both everyday and emergency scenarios. Able to operate entirely off-grid during a disaster, they are built around the short-term and immediate need for energy, communication, water, food, and supplies, and are strategically placed to activate public spaces, while encouraging neighbourhoods to build preparedness into their everyday lives. Should a disaster occur, they become the gathering places to access information, resources and connect with loved ones.
