Office of Emergency Management

ECC Support Team


The King County Emergency Coordination Center (ECC) Support Team was formed in 1995 to provide support services to the King County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) during disasters and emergencies.

The ECC Support Team is a non-profit, all volunteer, community service organization that exists under the Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 118-04 guidelines of the Emergency Worker Program. Membership is open to individuals with an interest in providing vital emergency operations support to the community during a disaster or emergency situation. Members must be registered as State Emergency Workers and submit to a criminal history and driving record background checks before participation.

The team meets monthly for training and exercise sessions and team meetings. The ECC also conducts routine trainings and exercises open to ECC representatives, ECC Support Team and King County Office of Emergency Management staff alike. Volunteers go through appropriate training to serve in a capacity in the ECC during emergencies. Team members may also be trained to fill a wide range of roles:

   Call Taker

    Radio Communications




    Agency Liaison Support
