Emergency Preparedness


To be a community dedicated to disaster preparation, response, and recovery.

Be safe, be prepared


"It can't happen here" is a cry we in emergency management hear far too frequently. The fact is that "here" is anyplace a disaster strikes.

My task is to make certain that the employees and people of the City of Bothell are as prepared as possible to mitigate, prepare for, respond to and recover from any type of disaster.

Emergency management emphasizes the need for a coordinated effort involving local, state and federal agencies as well as volunteer organizations and private businesses in the community.

It is my sincere hope that Bothell and its residents never experience the cruelness of any type of disaster, but have you taken the steps necessary to prepare yourself and your family?
