On August 1, 2017, the Woodinville City Council approved Ordinance 649 enacting the Emergency Preparedness and Public Safety Commission’s (EPPSC) recommendation to disband and dissolve the Commission structure. The recommendation by the EPPSC was made in order to better organize and serve the needs of the Woodinville community with regard to Emergency Preparedness, Management, and Recovery.
Former Commissioners will be recognized for their service and dedication at the September 12, 2017 City Council meeting.
While the Commission has dissolved, progress continues for Woodinville’s Emergency Management Program. This progress involves the coordination of local agencies responding to potential emergencies and threats, as well as a better organized and trained citizen volunteer group.
