The Military Department Emergency Management Division (EMD) coordinates and manages educational and outreach programs that support hazard mitigation. Objectives of these programs are to enhance public knowledge of the hazards they face, and encourage homeowners, private businesses, non-profit organizations, and state and local governments to take appropriate hazard mitigation measures. These activities reduce the impact of hazards on the people, economy, environment, and property in Washington. EMD develops and coordinates the State Hazard Mitigation Plan, which is required to maintain eligibility for Federal Disaster Relief funds. EMD also assists local jurisdictions develop hazard mitigation plans, which makes them eligible to apply for Federal Emergency Management Agency mitigation grant funding opportunities.

A026 - Disaster Preparedness/Readiness

The Emergency Management Division (EMD) manages public information, educational and outreach programs that support local and state preparedness, and readiness initiatives. These programs engage businesses, the public, non-profit organizations, local governments, and state agencies to prepare for emergencies or disasters, and to respond and recover with minimal disruption. Objectives of these programs are to enhance public knowledge of the hazards they face; instruct the public on how to prepare, and the correct actions to take during and after a disaster; and ensure state and local government essential emergency services remain available, which reduces the impact of disasters and emergencies on the people, economy, environment, and property in Washington. Military Support to Civil Authorities is a key component of this function and the National Guard readiness to assist in disasters is a core mission of the agency. Nearly 90 percent of all federal non-disaster related grants managed by the EMD are passed through to local jurisdictions to enhance their preparedness and response programs.

A027 - Disaster Response and Recovery

The Emergency Management Division (EMD) manages and maintains the State Emergency Operations Center (EOC), to effectively communicate and coordinate action with state agencies and local jurisdictions for effective response during an emergency. The State Alert and Warning Center, located in the state EOC, is a central point of contact for incident notification and information dissemination (24 hours a day, 365 days a year), which begins the state response to emergencies. The state EOC requires trained staff and effective and redundant communication and information systems to coordinate with and assist local jurisdictions and state agencies during emergencies and disasters. Local jurisdiction governments collect and process information from multiple sources and communicate status to the state EOC, which allows the state to coordinate state agency response and recovery actions (including resource assignment) and request assistance from the federal government when necessary. EMD administers federal disaster relief funds after a federal declaration of major disaster or emergency and coordinates the state recovery efforts. Over 90 percent of funds managed by the activity are passed through to local jurisdictions to enhance their preparedness and response programs.
