How does it work?
Seattle and King County Ready is designed to help educate and prepare people for disasters that occur in their area. Disasters don’t strike locations equally so we found it important to give location specific information in order to properly prepare. Seattle and King County Ready organizes current information and packages it in a way that makes it accessible for any King County resident.
This site uses the most up-to-date hazard risk data available for King County. The user of this site is responsible for verifying any particular information with the original data sources. Although these data represent the best current assessment of hazards, they are not predictive of future events. The descriptions of risk and how to prepare for those risks are based on best information from the American Red Cross and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
