[ARCHIVED] Check Supplies and Prepare Now for Disasters

Emergency Kit

Earthquakes, floods, snow, windstorms, fire, extended power outages, and influenza outbreaks are emergencies that the Puget Sound area has experienced and they can happen at any time. As the days get shorter and winter approaches, it is important to take time to prepare for potential emergencies.

The City of Mountlake Terrace reminds our community to prepare to take care of yourselves, your family and pets for several days or more in case we are unable to help right away. For those who are already prepared, it is time to review plans and check supplies. Go to Ready.gov for more information about making an emergency kit and shopping for supplies. Consider participating in the Great Washington ShakeOut on Thursday, October 19. Visit https://www.shakeout.org/washington/index.html for more information on earthquake preparedness.

In 2011, the City of Mountlake Terrace was awarded a $250,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to construct and equip an Emergency Operations Center (EOC).

The city’s EOC is used to coordinate response and recovery efforts during times of local disaster, assessing threats to life and property, coordinating police, fire and EMS resources, maintaining communications and informing state and surrounding jurisdictions of the local disaster situation.

In times when a larger scale response is necessary, the EOC works with regional disaster response organizations, which includes other local communities and the Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management.

Everyone should have a plan. Take the time now to get prepared. For more information, go to www.cityofmlt.com, “Services” and click on Emergency Preparedness under Emergency and Public Safety.
