Bainbridge Island: We’re on It Together

Bainbridge Prepares is dedicated to supporting our community through communication and awareness, because when we’re all connected and informed, our island thrives.

A collaborative blend of individuals, organizations, and local government, Bainbridge Prepares is actively making our island community more resilient through mutual aid among residents. Our shared goal is to become the most resilient town in Washington state.

In the event of a disaster like an earthquake, our brave first responders will be overwhelmed and our neighborhoods will be on their own. That’s when community is vital—neighbors helping neighbors—with everyone sharing the common goal of taking care of each other. Learn what disasters our island is likely to experience, what we and our emergency officials have done, and what you can do to prepare at our annual Three Days of Preparedness.

This site is your roadmap to action. As conscientious citizens, we can learn preparedness skills, build neighborly relations through the Map Your Neighborhood Program, volunteer with the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), learn about the new network of Hub shelters, or join one of our citizen-led teams.

Organizational leaders: You can get your campus, business, and faith-based organization prepared.

And if disaster never occurs? Thank goodness; let us continue to enjoy this marvelous island home!
