Emergency Management

Our Mission


To lessen the effects of disaster on the lives and property of the people of Lansing through leadership, coordination and support in the four phases of emergency management: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.

Building a Disaster Resilient Community


Emergency Management has two roles in the City of Lansing. On a day to day basis we work to prepare emergency responders, businesses, and citizens for disaster.

When disaster strikes, Emergency Management becomes a coordinating agency, bringing together those with a stake in emergency response and in community recovery to make the most effective disaster response possible.

Every disaster is a local disaster. Regardless of how widespread it is, or how many state or federal resources may be used, the City of Lansing is always responsible for disaster response within its borders.

When disaster strikes, come to this page for up to date information about the situation.
