The City of Kirkland Citizen Corps Council (CCC) is a group of Kirkland community participants committed to be a pathway for information flow between the Kirkland community and the City Office of Emergency Management (OEM).
The purpose of a CCC is to provide an opportunity for community engagement to share the interests and concerns of the represented group with OEM staff and an opportunity for OEM to share information about community programs and activities through community representatives.
The OEM leads the CCC, and the CCC is made up of representatives from a variety of community and business organizations. Participating groups reflect the City communities including, but not limited to, those associated with business, education, seniors, teens, youth, faith-based organizations, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), the Kirkland Emergency Communications Team (KECT), Map Your Neighborhood (MYN), community services, neighborhood associations, and first responders.
To get involved contact Emergency Management at KirklandEM@kirklandwa.gov or (425) 587-3691.
Citizen Corps is a national program with over 1,200 local, state, and tribal active programs. Citizen Corps was launched after the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 as United States residents sought out increased opportunities to help prepare and volunteer for their communities.
