Training & Exercise

The Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management (DEM) coordinates training and exercise opportunities designed to increase disaster resilience and response readiness across the County in preparation for potential emergencies and/or disasters.  Training and exercise opportunities bring community partners together from local emergency management, local and state government, public safety/first responders, nonprofit and volunteer organizations, and the private sector.  For more information contact Jarrod Dibble, (425) 388-5073.

Training is offered online and in-house from local, state, and Federal partners with the purpose of preparing our residents, responders, and partners with the skill to respond and recover from disasters.
Exercises are conducted to validate plans, policies, and procedures by facilitated seminars, workshops, tabletops, drills, functional, or full-scale exercise following the Homeland Security Exercise & Evaluation Program (HSEEP).
