Get Involved

Washoe County Emergency Management (WCEM) is a regional program. We plan, prepare, mitigate, respond, and recover together as a whole community. Community success and resiliency depend on all members of the community coming together to support one another. If you're interested in having a positive impact here at home, please see below for opportunities.
