Emergency Preparedness Committee


After you prepare yourself and your family for an emergency or disaster, use “The Map” in the left sidebar to see if you are in a "prepared" neighborhood. If you are not, use the “MYN (Map Your Neighbourhood)” program (sidebar) to organize your neighborhood.


Sign up for NIXLE (sidebar) and subscribe to Nextdoor.com to review the emergency preparedness announcements on the “Public Agencies” news feed from the "Jefferson County Department of Emergency Management and the Washington State Emergency Management Division.  


Communication is key. Learn about FRS (Family Radio Services "walkie-talkies") and ham (Amateur) radio networks. Use those networks to ask for help, to offer help, or to learn what is happening. Future ham classes will be announced on the “Public Agencies” newsfeed on Nextdoor.


Check out other links in the left sidebar like the EP Digital Library under development, and the ShelterBox. (More will be added.)
