Welcome to the City of Kirkland’s Emergency Preparedness website. Here you will find valuable information designed to help citizens, businesses and organizations prepare for the next disaster that impacts Kirkland. Why?
The City of Kirkland serves approximately 81,000 citizens. In a major disaster we will have approximately 30 first responders to assist this population! In such times, citizens will have to fend for themselves, for some time, even if injured.

- help you prepare for disasters that take place when you’re at home, work or on the road
