Emergency Management

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.
