Eastpointe Police and Fire Department
RESIDENTS OF EASTPOINTE
Our number one priority as first responders is to protect you and your family members. We are now asking that you protect us during the COVID-19 pandemic. All you have to do is follow the simple temporary rules by staying home, continue to sanitize, and limit your contact with others. Every time you leave your home for unnecessary reasons, you increase the risk of being exposed and exposing others including your family members. We need to be smart because this is real. I will assure you that this will pass if everyone works together and does their part. Our first responders have taken every step to protect themselves from exposure. We are hoping for the best because there are no guarantees. For now, both police and fire have changed some of their operational approaches to make certain all of us are safe. We will always provide you with around the clock service to the best of our abilities. Remember, we are no use to you if we get ill.
According to the Macomb County Health Department, Eastpointe is a “hot spot.” We have no idea how many people in Eastpointe have been affected because we are not privy to that information. We also are not aware of where these individuals contracted the virus. One case is too many. The numbers will continue to increase as more people are being tested. You will see that the virus will spread and will continue to spread if we are not accountable for our actions. This has not been easy for anyone; however, we as a community can make a difference one day at a time. For now, take advantage of your family time, movie watching, house cleaning and organizing those closets and drawers. If you know anyone that is struggling, let us know. I want to thank you for your continued support and being part of our Eastpointe family.
PS. As of yesterday, there were 5,486 reported cases in Michigan with 132 reported deaths. In Macomb County, there were 732 cases with 24 reported deaths.
Be Healthy and Safe

Our crew is working on 9 Mile in the area of Donald, Cushing, Rausch, Saxony and David. They are turning water gate valves trying to get a shut for 9 Mile for the Donald water main project. Residents may have discolored water. If discolored, run the cold water for a few minutes and if it doesn’t clear up after a few minutes, refrain from using for a little while and try it again.

When you see us out on medical emergency runs, you will see the crews taking extra precautions, masks and eye protection. Let us stress that this IS NOT because of a positive COVID-19 at the fire department or within the City limits. This is due to an abundance of caution for not only our first responders but also you the citizen. We are still here to provide services to our citizens and we want to make sure we stay safe and healthy for you and our families.
