Natural Hazard Mitigation
The Emergency Services Coordinating Agency (ESCA) serves as the emergency management agency for each of its member cities in south Snohomish County and north King County. Mukilteo joined ESCA in 2004. One of ESCA’s roles is to develop and maintain a natural hazard mitigation strategy for north King County and south Snohomish County and its member cities. That strategy is described in the “Regional Mitigation Plan for Natural Hazards.” The plan identifies mitigation strategies and future mitigation projects as a means to assist in meeting the requirements of various federal assistance programs. The plan helps member cities identify the hazards that could impact them, determines the vulnerability of the community to these hazards, and identifies mitigation strategies to prevent or reduce the impacts these hazards pose to the community. The plan will help save lives and property, reduce vulnerability to future hazards, speed recovery, demonstrate commitment to improving community health and safety and demonstrate accountability and regional coordination. The Mitigation Plan has been in the process of being updated for the past two years. The updated plan can be viewed here.
