Operation Every House Prepared

In an effort to help City residents prepare for natural and man-made disasters, the City of Bothell embarked on an unprecedented emergency preparedness campaign called "Operation: Every House Prepared."

In March of 2007, City volunteers delivered approximately 15,000 emergency preparedness information packets to City and Snohomish County Fire District #10 households.

NOAA Radios

Do you have a smoke detector? Of course - it alerts you when it detects smoke. Weather radios alert you to many other immediate, life-threatening hazards in your area, like hazardous weather events, volcanoes, hazardous releases, and other dangerous events.

Without a weather radio, you could miss a critical warning message from local emergency authorities that could save your life and those in your family.

Weather Radios should be as common as smoke detectors in homes and businesses statewide to help protect lives and property from natural and technological hazards.
