Shiawassee County Emergency Management

Shiawassee County Emergency Management News, information, and updates from the Shiawassee County Emergency Management & Homeland Security department. Stay in the know! This office is tasked with coordinating efforts to mitigate situations that could become hazards to our community.

Part of that effort is to prepare individuals, governmental units and businesses, should a disaster or emergency occur. Should an incident occur, we must now be able to respond in an efficient manner to protect lives, property and the environment. Recovery from the effects of the emergency or disaster is often the most difficult task. This utilizes a number of resources, in a coordinated effort to restore our community, back to level of normalcy, after a large scale disaster.

UPDATE: Today’s statewide tornado drill has been CANCELED by the National Weather Service. Please take the time to make sure you have a plan in place.

Tornado sirens will be sounded across the State of Michigan at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 23 as part of Severe Weather Awareness Week, which is held from March 20 through March 26.

With no tornado warning system available in much of rural Shiawassee County, I encourage every home owner to get a weather radio. Just like smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, a weather radio just sits there silently and sounds a piercing alarm if a warning is issued (it will also alert you to watches if you program it to). Many of the radios have a battery backup and may just save your life if a tornado hits at night while everyone is sleeping.

Know the difference: Tornado Watch means conditions exist for a tornado to develop; Tornado Warning means a tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar.

Know the signs of an approaching tornado: dark, often greenish sky; large hail; a large, dark low-lying cloud; and loud roar, like a freight train.

Know the safest place in your residence is usually the lowest area such as the basement. If you don’t have a basement it is usually an interior room away from any windows. The idea is to get into an area that will protect you from flying objects that may pe*****te your home.

Put together an emergency preparedness kit with essential items such as a NOAA Weather Radio, a flashlight and a 3 day supply of food and water.

(Although not all communities will test their sirens, residents can still participate in the voluntary drill by making sure each household member knows where to go and what to do in the event of a tornado)

⚠️This will possibly also affect the rivers and drains in Shiawassee County, causing some localized flooding. If you experience flooding please call the Shiawassee County Drain Office. (989) 743-2398.

Heads-up West Michigan! A midweek warmup and rain will melt snow and send a bunch of water toward our ice-covered rivers. While no widespread flooding is expected, the risk of ice jams will be increasing later this week and into this weekend. The greatest risk for ice jams is along the Grand River, including the smaller rivers that feed into the Grand River. Keep a close eye on the rivers near you, and have a plan if the water starts coming up quickly!
