Welcome to the Lenawee County Office of Emergency Management

The office of emergency management coordinates preparedness planning, training, and exercising between law enforcement, fire service, emergency medical services, health department, hospitals, human services agencies, and others involved in disaster response and recovery. The office of emergency management is mandated by Michigan Public Act 390 of 1976 as amended, it is better known as the Michigan Emergency Management act. The Emergency Management Coordinator and Emergency Operations Center (EOC) staff would activate during a disaster to provide support for the incident commanders in the field to provide them the necessary resources to mitigate a large incident. The EOC is the central location for the government to provide support during disaster operations.
