The City of Woodinville uses an all-hazards approach to planning for disasters. This allows the City to prepare for a wide variety of potential incidents and facilitates an effective response of City departments and community partners. Working together we strive to prevent loss of life and reduce damages to property, the environment, and the economy.
The Emergency Management function facilitates development of City emergency management plans, including revisions and updates identified during exercises or implementations of the plans. The primary focus of planning is creating flexible and adaptable capabilities that can be applied to many situations.
Preparing for disasters is a community-wide responsibility and the City's intent is to support individual efforts through information and opportunities to be involved. Emergency Management involves each individual, business, and community-based organization within the City of Kirkland working together as a whole community.
