Emergencies and Extreme Weather

When a major emergency happens within city limits, the City of Bellevue will likely open its Emergency Operations Center. The EOC is located in a secure facility where city departments can work closely together to coordinate the emergency response, allocate resources and support management of the incident.

If the EOC is activated, the latest information on the situation will be posted on the home page as soon as it is available.

The city will use the media, Alerts notifications, social media (Twitter, Facebook, Nextdoor) and other methods to get information out quickly to the public.
