Military Department

RCW 38

The Military Department has dual purposes – state and federal. The state purpose is to coordinate resources, provide trained personnel to minimize the impacts of disasters and emergencies on people, support civil authorities in the protection of life and property, and reclaim the educational and employment potential of 16-18 year-old high school dropouts through the Youth Challenge Program. The federal purpose is to provide mission ready units and organizations capable of rapid deployment in times of global conflict or national emergency.

Agency Mission

Provide trained professionals and operational forces who are ready to defend our state and nation, respond to emergencies and disasters, and build partnerships that improve communities and transform the lives of at-risk youth.
