The mission of Mercer Island Emergency Management is to prepare for, respond to, and recover from local and regional incidents, and to prepare Mercer Islanders to be self-sufficient for 7 days following a major disaster. We offer a wide range of classes, trainings and certifications to achieve these goals.

Winter Storm Ready
We are launching a page dedicated to helping residents, business owners, and visitors safely navigate Mercer Island throughout winter storm season. The Winter Storm Ready information page has information about power outages, landslide safety, the City's snow and ice response plan and more.
During major winter weather events, the Winter Storm Ready page will be updated regularly with road closures/openings, City office and facility closures, and more.
