Emergency Management

Emergency drill

Disasters are major events that can strike anywhere and at any time. In a disaster, traditional 9-1-1 and First Responder capabilities such as fire, police, medics, and utility personnel will be overwhelmed and unable to immediately assist individuals.

In order to prepare for, and respond to, disaster events, the City of Bellingham's Office of Emergency Management works closely with other jurisdictions in Whatcom County in a partnership known as Whatcom Unified Emergency Management. For more information on emergency management related activities, please visit the Whatcom Unified Emergency Management website.
