Whether you are moving to our city, or just visiting and want information, we want you to feel welcome.

Established in the late 1880’s and officially incorporated in 1905, our community has a rich and colorful heritage. Logging, mining and agriculture provided the economic and cultural foundation in those early years. Today, Sultan is a quiet but growing community with a population fast approaching 5,000.

Our city is on the brink of a great transformation. Already several hundred new residential homes, commercial and retail projects currently are in the development process. We recognize that growth is inevitable, and we are actively taking the steps necessary to protect the wonderful way of life that our residents have treasured for over one hundred years.

Neighborhoods that are prepared for emergencies and disaster situations save lives, reduce the severity of injuries and trauma and reduce property damage. In addition, contributing as an individual and working together as a team helps develop stronger communities and improve the quality of life in the community.

The Map Your Neighborhood program guides you and your neighbors through simple steps to help enhance your preparedness for an emergency. These steps will help you to quickly and safely take actions that can minimize damage and protect lives. It is designed to improve disaster readiness at the neighborhood level and teaches neighbors to rely on each other during the hours or days before fire, medical, police or utility responders arrive.

The City of Sultan and the Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management Presents: A two hour workshop on how to implement Map Your Neighborhood in your area. The class will be held on Saturday February 25, 2017 at 3:00pm at the Grace Fellowship Church located at 14030 Sultan Basin Road in Sultan Washington.

Effective June 1, 2016, Snohomish County is providing non-emergency numbers for the public use. After years of promoting 9-1-1 as the number for non-emergencies, YOU ARE NOW ASKED TO CALL 9-1-1 ONLY FOR EMERGENCIES.

Calls for police with no immediate danger to life or property, found property, or firework complaints should be referred to the non-emergency numbers.

The new numbers are: 425.407.3999 (SNOPAC) and 425.775.3000 (SNOCOM). SNOPAC is the call center for Everett and for East and North Snohomish County. SNOCOM is the call center for South Snohomish County. When in doubt, refer to the SNOPAC number.

Snohomish County has developed a web page with information for the public about calling 911 which lists the new phone numbers, links to other resources (filing a noise complaint, the online crime report etc.) and what constitutes an “emergency”.

For more information, please contact your local police department or call City Hall at 360.793.2231.
