If a local disaster were to occur, the City of Farmington Hills is ready. By City Ordinance and Michigan law, we are required to maintain an Emergency Operations Plan. If the Mayor were to declare a “State of Emergency,” the Plan would immediately go into effect and an Emergency Operations Center would be set up to provide assistance and directions to the “first responders” and citizens.
The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) provided water and supplies to citizens during the blackout in August, 2003. Since then, the EOC team has staged several small- and large-scale emergency training exercises to test our plans.
While the City is working hard to ensure that it is prepared in the event of a disaster, we encourage families and businesses to be prepared to take care of themselves until help can arrive. Information on how you can prepare your family or business is available through the Farmington Hills Fire Department or on the Federal Emergency Management Agency
