Emergency management professionals

King County Emergency Management 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 - Protection, Prevention, Response, Recovery, and Mitigation - drive our work to:

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

Stakeholder engagement:

Regional plans and committees - emergency management strategies, agreements, and working groups

Training and exercises - schedule and registration information


Emergency notification - public opt-in systems for staying informed about impending hazards, transportation disruptions, and public safety directives within King County

Service catalog - comprehensive guide to resources available to emergency management professionals, elected leaders, and anyone with a responsibility for preparing their organization for disaster response and recovery
