Ways to Survive

Emergency Management Program Strategic Plan
This plan is a road map Bellevue's emergency management over the next few years. It aims to strengthen the foundation of the city's emergency management activities by coordinating existing and future activities that protect citizens, property and the environment from the wide range of natural and human-caused hazards that threaten the city. Emergency Management Strategic Plan
When you call 9-1-1 today, the operator receives very little information about you – basically just your phone number and your general location. Smart911 allows you to create a free safety profile to provide critical, lifesaving data to 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency call. Sign up for Smart911
Reverse 911 is operated by the North East King County Regional Public Safety Communication Agency (NORCOM). It is built to pull up a selected grouping of phone numbers, call them, and play a prerecorded message giving emergency instructions to whoever receives the message. Most phone numbers are supplied by the phone companies. You can add or remove information from the database at NORCOM.
