For the safety of Port of Edmonds staff, tenants, customers and the public, the port is moving into an emergency operations status effective Saturday, March 28.
According to Brittany Williams, the port’s manager of properties and marketing, this essentially means that the following operations will be closed until further notice:
- All Port offices
- Forklift operations
- Travelift and boatyard
- Public launch
- Fuel dock
The port will continue to monitor VHF Channel 69 on a 24-hour-a-day basis, Williams said, and the facilities at the Port of Edmonds will not be left unattended.

In addition, the Edmonds Port Commission at its Wednesday, March 25 meeting passed a resolution declaring a local emergency and delegation of authority. Under this resolution, the port’s executive director is authorized “to exercise such emergency powers as may be lawful under applicable laws, regulations, ordinances, or the district’s policies,” Williams said.
