A. It is the policy of the City of Snohomish to make the best possible preparation and use of manpower, resources, and facilities for dealing with any emergency or disaster that may occur, and to cooperate to the extent possible with adjacent jurisdictions in order to make maximum use of local emergency response and recovery resources.
B. All personnel of the City of Snohomish are directed to support the emergency and disaster preparedness, response and recovery activities of the emergency management organization as defined in the approved Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan.
C. Because the demands of the emergency may prevent the City from meeting all of the immediate needs of the community, each citizen is encouraged to prepare for at least seven (7) days without outside help. (Ord. 2026, 2003; Ord. 2306, 2016)
