RECS Organization

The Renton ECS operates under the direction of the City of Renton Office of Emergency Management which is house within the Renton Fire & Emergency Services Department.  The RECS leadership and organization as a whole operates using the Incident Command System in compliance with the National Incident Management System.  RECS is an official ARES/RACES team and is a registered Fire Corps program.  

As City of Renton volunteers and registered State of Washington Emergency Workers, members have passed background checks and have completed basic ICS certifications.  Advanced training is ongoing with clearly structured training processes designed with performance standards, accountability, policies, procedures, management, and supervision for members to serve effectively in the emergency role.
