Emergency Management

Emergency Planning

Our mission is to minimize loss of life and personal injury, damage to property and the environment-related to disasters which may be natural or man-made. Our staff diligently works to enhance our “all-hazard” Emergency Management Program and the county’s Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan. We strive to accomplish this through a continuing program of outreach, coordination, planning, training and exercising for all-hazard events.

There are four core elements of managing any all-hazard event: mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. For example, wildfires and flash flooding have become prevalent and nearly an annual event within Chelan County. The Emergency Management office works with local community leaders, fire districts, the Local Emergency Planning Committee and others to mitigate and prepare for these events. Evacuation plans are reviewed and improved as necessary. As the fire and flood situations actually occur, we coordinate with local fire districts, the U.S. Forest Service, State DNR, the American Red Crossand others to provide a coordinated and unified response, always keeping “life safety” as our primary objective.  After a large event, we work with state and federal officials to seek as much reimbursement to the county as possible.
