The King County Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) is for use by elected and appointed County officials, and King County government department directors, managers and staff in mitigating, preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disasters.

This plan is a product of coordinated planning efforts between King County Emergency Management, County departments, emergency management representatives from various political jurisdictions, and selected private and nonprofit sector interests. It meets the requirements of WAC 118-30 and the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) planning guidance for the National Response Framework and the National Incident Management System (NIMS) compliance.

The CEMP is reviewed by Washington State Emergency Management Division at least every four years and updated accordingly, with citizen input encouraged.

The Basic Plan and it's Appendices, Emergency Support Functions, and Incident and Support Annexes are available by request. Contact our Response Plans Manager Amy.Gillespie@kingcounty.gov or call 206-205-4066.
