Emergency Management

The Office of Emergency Management manages a comprehensive emergency management program and supports response efforts within the City of Bellevue. This process involves mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. We aim to prevent hazards from impacting residents altogether, and minimizing the effects of disasters when they occur.

Emergency Management Day-to-Day Operations

Large-scale emergencies or events do not occur every day. During normal operations our office attends to essential tasks such as educating the public, creating plans, developing training and exercises, and engaging local and regional partners. City resilience depends on these day to day operations. 

Emergency Operations

Response to emergencies or events that may harm residents requires coordination between city departments. The Office of Emergency Management manages that coordination from the Emergency Operations Center. Bellevue's EOC is a central location from which subject matter experts provide resources and expertise in support of incident response and recovery operations. 


Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan

Bellevue’s Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan is an all-hazards plan that describes the structure of the city’s emergency management program, and provides a  framework for citywide prevention, mitigation, response and recovery activities. 

Strategic Plan 2018-2020

Bellevue's Strategic Plan 2018-2020 provides a framework for how the City of Bellevue's Emergency Management Program will continue to improve and increase citywide resilience over the next three years.
