Sign-up for the Livingston County Emergency Alert System for citizens. This system will send emergency alerts to the electronic media of your choice; cell phone, text, or email. You can even rank the order of what method is used first. This alerting system works to make sure you and your family are notified during times of disaster or emergency within Livingston County.

This Livingston County Emergency Alert System allows you to choose the types of incidents to be notified of.  It also gives you the option to tell us if you have special considerations or needs we should be aware of in the event of an evacuation.  ALL the information you provide is voluntary and confidential.  It will not be used for any purpose other than an emergency or disaster situation.  Check out the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) on the site to get a better understanding of the system.  

Remember, every little thing you do to be better prepared has the potential to be a big benefit to you and your family during an actual emergency or disaster.   

A Message from the Michigan State Police, Emergency Management & Homeland Security Division

Emergencies can happen at any time. Being prepared saves lives! Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away. The best way to make you and your family safer is to be prepared before an emergency occurs. We encourage everyone to:

  • Be Informed
  • Make a Plan
  • Build a Kit
  • Practice and Maintain Your Plan and Kit

These simple steps can make a difference in ensuring your safety and the safety of your loved ones in an emergency situation.

The Michigan State Police, Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division (MSP/EMHSD) is committed to fostering, promoting and maintaining partnerships to protect our state and homeland from all hazards.

We are pleased to provide you with this Family Preparedness Guide that will assist you in preparing your family to respond to and recover from all types of emergencies. This guide will help you develop an emergency plan, prepare an emergency supply kit, and learn about emergency preparedness for families, pets, persons with disabilities, and the elderly.

We encourage you to keep this manual handy as a reference tool and implement many of the suggestions found inside to better prepare your family for any emergency situation.
