Welcome to the City of Maple Valley's Emergency Management information page. This page contains emergency management information, resource links for businesses and residents. 

The Maple Valley City Council Municipal Code established the Emergency Management plan under the direction of the City Manager. The Emergency Management Director has been designated by the City Manager and is designated to coordinate emergency preparedness and management activities within the City of Maple Valley.

The Emergency Management team of the City of Maple Valley is responsible for the following:

  1. Coordinate the maintenance and exercising of the City's Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan [PDF], which provides the framework for organizational activities during disaster operations.

  2. Provide a community education and preparedness program for the residential, school, and business communities to assist them in developing self-sufficiency.

  3. Provide assistance to City departments in training activities for the development of contract-responder capabilities. Foster an atmosphere of interagency cooperation within the City of Maple Valley and with community support groups, adjacent jurisdictions as well as county, state, and federal agencies.

During a disaster such as a major windstorm, flooding, or earthquake, all official radio communication channels within the City could potentially be jammed with emergency traffic. Recognizing the uncertain nature of emergency communications, individuals and families need to develop a degree of self-reliance for the first week. To help prepare for a disaster, the City of Maple Valley encourages citizens to:

  • Assemble a Disaster Supply Kit
  • Develop a Family Emergency Preparedness Plan
  • Learn CPR and First Aid
  • Determine a central contact (preferably out of the area)
  • Determine a central meeting point outside your home
  • Find out how to shut off the water, gas, and electricity
  • Attend an Disaster Preparedness Class

There are no incident-specific emergency events at this time.  During an emergency the Maple Valley Emergency Operations Center will be activated.  The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) phone number is 425-413-5991, this number is only active during an EOC activation.

Road Closures

Grinding, Paving, and Striping Project Along Kent Kangley - Overlook Plat
The contractor building the new Overlook Plat located along Kent Kangley between 236th Place SE and 237th Avenue SE will be striping the road starting on Thursday, July 5th through July 6th, from 7:00 AM through 7:00 PM.  There will be lane restrictions along Kent Kangley and we will need to close off access to Kent Kangley on 236th Place SE and a small section of 237th Avenue SE behind the Maple Valley Grill.  Please avoid this area if possible, and expect long delays at times.  Thank you for your patience during this construction phase.

For any questions, please feel free to call the City of Maple Valley Construction Inspector Tom Bowen at 206-391-8160.


Tahoma Way will be Closed Starting Monday, July 2, 2018 Through Most of the Summer

Starting the morning of Monday, July 2, 2018, the contractor building the new roundabout for the Overlook Plat, Summit Ball Park, and East Entrance to high school will close down Tahoma Way to do the construction work.  The road will stay closed to traffic until the start of the school in September.  However it will open for a couple of events the school has planned on August 15th and 16th.  The contractor will provide pedestrian access for some of the students that walk or ride a bike to activities from the King County Trail.  The pedestrian route may change from time to time during the work and concrete pours, but safe routes will always be provided into the school for them.  A detour route will be installed with signs directing the traveling public to the west parking lot entrance off of 228th Avenue SE at Bear Boulevard.

Thank you for your patience, and sorry for the disruption, however there is no way the contractor would get close enough to completion without the closure.  Final elements of the project may not be done by the start of the school year, and at that time work will need to be phased to not disrupt school bus, and parent drop offs, or pick-ups. 

For any questions, please contact Tom Bowen, Maple Valley Construction Inspector, at 206-391-8160.
