Emergency Preparedness
The Mission of Lake Forest Park Emergency Preparedness is to ensure our citizens and businesses are prepared in the event of an emergency.

Our Mission includes city government, city staff, citizens, businesses, schools, and the faith community. We should all be prepared to be self-sufficient for 7 days following a major disaster where public safety and emergency medical services are overwhelmed and may not be available to respond to most calls.
