The Northshore Emergency Management Coalition is a partnership among the cities of Kenmore and Lake Forest Park (LFP), the Northshore Fire Department (NSFD) and the Northshore Utility District (NUD). NEMCo was created to provide the communities it serves with efficient emergency management resources.
FEMA: FEMA periodically offers preparedness webinars. Their website offers pre-recorded webinars.
Periodic on-line Zoom classes. ACT to Save a Life, sponsored by South County Fire, is a one-hour first aid class that focuses on the three skills you can use to save a life in the first few minutes of an emergency:
Antidote for suspected opiate overdose
CPR and AED for cardiac arrest
Tourniquet for severe bleeding control
MEETING CHANGES FOR 2022
The NEMCo partners are all following the guidelines set forth by King County Public Health due to the Covid-19 pandemic. They are the lead agency for managing this outbreak and we will continue to implement their recommendations.
Our regularly scheduled in-person RACES and general volunteer meetings have been switched to Zoom meetings until further notice. Our Emergency Manager will provide an email with additional guidance prior to a meeting.
NEMCo would like to thank First Responders for everything they do for our community.
