About Emergency Management

Michigan law requires every county to have an emergency management coordinator. The Office of Emergency Management fulfills that requirement for Midland County. The overall mission is to prepare the community for disasters. 

When a community-wide emergency or disaster occurs local officials gather at an emergency operations center (EOC) to coordinate response and recovery efforts.

Plans and procedures are in place for responding to a variety of events that could happen in Midland County. 

Midland County follows guidance provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Michigan State Police Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division.  FEMA and the Michigan State Police set standards for planning and training. They also keep Midland County informed of regulatory and program changes, advances in technology, and lessons learned from disasters in other parts of the country.

The Office of Emergency Management is responsible for managing local homeland security initiatives. The emergency management coordinator is a member of the Region 3 Homeland Security Planning Board and is chairman of the committee that develops homeland security strategy for a 14-county region of Michigan.
