Emergency Management

Michigan law requires every county to have an emergency management coordinator. The Office of Emergency Management fulfills that requirement for Midland County. The overall mission is to prepare the community for disasters. 

Where to Get Official Emergency Information

NOAA Weather Radio

Invest in a NOAA Weather All Hazards Radio with Specific Area Message Encoding (S.A.M.E.) and you can receive official weather advisories and watch and warning information from the National Weather Service for Midland County. A good quality radio can be purchased for around $50. 

Commercial Radio and Television

Local broadcasters in our area have volunteered to provide emergency information through the Emergency Alert System (EAS). Many radio and television stations participate. In Midland, WMPX 1490 AM is an active partner in providing local emergency information. Some information is also available for Charter Cable customers on Midland Government Television, Channel 188.


Call the Midland County Emergency Information Hotline, 1-888-835-5667, to hear a recorded emergency message. You can also call 2-1-1 to talk to an operator from 2-1-1 Northeast Michigan who will answer questions and direct you to where you can get more information.


Hazardous Materials Emergency Response Planning 


The Midland County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) will support and enhance communitywide awareness, preparedness, response and recovery activities regarding hazardous materials to provide for the health and safety of the community.



The Midland County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) will educate, coordinate, facilitate and provide resources regarding hazardous materials within the community. This will be accomplished by connecting community stakeholders with first responder, transportation, and local industry.
