Community Risk Assessment Dashboard

The South Bay Fire District is excited to announce its new, online Community Risk Assessment Dashboard. 

This virtual dashboard is created in partnership with mySidewalk, a data science platform designed for public service.


Our Fire Department responds to thousands of incidents each year, the majority of which are calls for Emergency Medical Service. We are on the front lines responding to emergency incidents, but it is also our duty to proactively prevent and mitigate the impact of these incidents. 

This Community Risk Assessment is being used as a comprehensive plan to prevent incidents and improve life for all our residents.

Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery

Regional Approach
Effective January 11, 2021, the State of Washington is launching Healthy Washington – Roadmap to Recovery which will use a regional approach for its upcoming phased recovery plan. These regions are largely based on the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) regions used for evaluating healthcare services given the concern for COVID-19’s potential impact on the healthcare system.

There will be eight regions in Washington that fall along county lines. Most regions in Washington have four or more counties. These regions are designed based on the available health care services in the area which has a strong connection to the metrics we will be using for COVID-19 hospitalizations, case data, and general mobility of individuals.

Washington Exposure Notifications - WA Notify

Washington Exposure Notifications (also known as WA Notify) is a new tool that works through smartphones,

without sharing any personal information, to alert users if they may have been exposed to COVID-19.

It is completely private, and doesn’t know or track who you are or where you go.
