City Preparedness

The City of Kirkland uses an all hazards approach to disaster management. Our region is susceptible to a multitude of hazards, so taking an all-hazards approach allows the City to prepare for incidents that may occur in the Pacific Northwest.  
 
The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is the focal point for emergency management planning in the City. The City's Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan provides a description of the areas in which the City government takes an active role in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disasters.
 
Emergency Management ultimately extends to each individual in the community and to every business and community-based organization within the City of Kirkland. We believe that preparing for disasters is a community-wide responsibility and the City’s intent to support individual efforts through information and opportunities to be involved.

During disasters, the City will utilize an After-Hours Public information Line (425) 587-3637, the City's website, and social media to share information.
