Important Contacts & Resources

We live in a world that faces a variety of threats - both natural and man-made. Will we have to deal with the impacts of floods, severe storms, wildfires, and an eruption of Mount Rainier, earthquake, biological agents, chemicals, suicide bombings, or cyberspace attacks?

The City of Bonney Lake is working on updating its Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan to promote citizen self-sufficiency, improve first responder capabilities, guide organizational behavior in an emergency or disaster, and create an atmosphere of interagency cooperation.

Below are some important phone numbers and resources. Save the phone numbers to your phone contacts and be prepared digitally before an emergency or crisis.

Winter Weather Information
For winter driving information Visit WSDOT at Winter Weather Driving Info. 

Water has a unique property in that it expands as it freezes. This expansion puts tremendous pressure on whatever is containing it, including metal or plastic pipes. No matter the strength of a container, expanding water can cause pipes to break.

For tips on cold temperatures and frozen pipes, Visit Redcross at Cold Temperatures & Frozen Pipes .
