The Vashon EOC Team is a proud partner of VashonBePrepared - Vashon's innovative disaster preparedness coalition, the island Citizen Corp Council.
VashonBePrepared is a federally recognized, educational 501(c)(3) non-profit coalition of disaster preparedness organizations on Vashon -Maury Islands in Washington's Puget Sound region. As the FEMA designated Citizen Corp Council, VashonBePrepared has a near virtual presence and mainly serves to coordinate our very active partner groups which harness the real volunteer energy around this issue. VashonBePrepared has a real presence in many people’s lives - and potentially even more in the future.
VashonBePrepared has no operational role during disasters. Instead the Vashon EOC Team reports to Vashon Island Fire & Rescue which works closely with King County's Office of Emergency Management. KC OEM then works with Washington State's Emergency Management Division and they with FEMA.
