Good relationships with local units of government are essential to planning for and responding to disasters. This website offers information for local townships in Isabella County to help adopt resolutions that will allow the townships to take an active part in preparing for and responding to disasters.
A 3 step, recommended plan for local governments:
1. Adopt the Michigan Emergency Management Assistance Compact in your jurisdiction
This will allow your jurisdiction to coordinate resources between agencies and jurisdictions, and to know what you will expect to pay for resources.
2. Adopt a NIMS Resolution for your jurisdiction
This will ensure that your agencies will be eligible for future Homeland Security grants.
3. Adopt a Hazard Mitigation Resolution
This will ensure that your jurisdiction will be eligible for future hazard mitigation grants.
