About the Division of Emergency Management

Road ClosedThe Division of Emergency Management (DEM) is responsible for developing and maintaining a community infrastructure for emergency/disaster mitigation, planning, response, and recovery.

At our WhatcomReady website, you can find out more about WUEM, as well as learn about hazards in our community, how you can prepare for them, and how you can get involved.
