The City's Emergency Management Division is a "joint effort" between the City, Woodinville Fire and Rescue and King County Sheriff's Office. The City's emergency preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery efforts are described in the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) - a requirement of the State. One of the Plan's vital goals is to provide for the "continuity of government" in the event of a disaster that affects the City. The plan facilitates restoration of basic city government operations and establishes appropriate response and recovery actions.
In the event of a major disaster in the
City of Woodinville, resources will be coordinated
by personnel from the City, Woodinville Fire & Life
Safety District, King County National
Incident Management System, Sheriff's
Office, Woodinville Water District, Northshore
School District and other local and/or state
agencies that will assist with the response
and recovery efforts.
In the event of a disaster, the City will
use the City's Traveler's Information Radio
Station 1610 a.m., the After-Hours Emergency
Information Line 425.877.2269, and the City's
website to disseminate information pertaining
to the emergency.
Emergency management and response agencies at all levels of
government are required to adopt the (NIMS) . The NIMS represents
a core set of doctrine, concepts, principles, terminology, and
organizational processes to enable effective, efficient, and
collaborative incident management at all levels.
: In 2004, the Woodinville City Council adopted the King County Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan by Resolution 283. The King County Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan incorporates many jurisdictions and special districts in King County into the plan (including Woodinville), and identifies potential hazards and mitigating efforts by the different jurisdictions.
In 2009, the City became a member of ESCA (our new emergency management services agency). ESCA is in the process of reviewing the Hazard Mitigation Plan and, the City will incorporate our Hazard Mitigation Plan into ESCA's plan and will no longer be included in the King County Hazard Mitigation Plan.
ESCA is currently updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan and as part of the process, the ESCA cities and regional partners, are requesting citizen input on the Mitigation Plan. To view a copy of the plan, please visit http://www.esca1.com
