Emergency management professionals

King County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) provides leadership and support to the entire region of King County - the 14th largest county in the nation with two million people. We work in partnership with cities, counties, state, and federal agencies, tribes, special purpose districts, non-profit organizations, community groups, and  private businesses to develop a regional approach to emergency planning, response, and recovery. These collaborative partnerships are essential for effective coordination of information, resources, and services throughout our region. Together we are committed to protecting public safety, property, and the environment.

The five phases of emergency management - Mitigation, Prevention, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery - drive the work we do:

  • Coordinate regional emergency planning, response, and recovery activies through partner agency engagement.
  • Manage resources and information sharing before, during, and after a disaster.
  • Facilitate trainings and exercises to test regional emergency capabilities and interagency communications.
  • Recommend policies, strategies, and standards.
  • Fund and maintain regional technology tools that provide situation awareness, alert, warning, and notifications for emergencies.  

 Regional plans and committees support emergency management strategies
