This is a new Commission approved by the La Conner Town Council on January 24, 2023. The purpose of the La Conner Emergency Management Commission is to create a framework from within which the Town can increase its capability to respond and recover from a major disaster pursuant to Chapter 2.225 of the La Conner Municipal Code.
Sand and unfilled sandbags are typically maintained at the fire station, located at 12142 Chilberg Road. Just prior to flood events, volunteers are called to action to fill and deliver sandbags to private parties. Residents may also come to the fire station to fill their own sandbags. While shovels and funnels are maintained at the fire station, residents are advised to bring their own shovels and gloves.
