Concept of Operations

Potential natural and technological hazards exist in the City of Trenton. The Department of Emergency Management is tasked with providing a plan to respond to any of these hazards. The current Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) defines the tasks and responsibilities of each city department. The plan also contains the escalation procedures for requesting assistance from Wayne County, the State of Michigan and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. An Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is located in the basement of the Municipal Building, 2872 West Jefferson. It is capable of coordinating and directing the city’s emergency response efforts. It is available 24 hours a day/7 days a week Annual exercises test the plan, the center, and the communications between the city, county and state organizations.
