State of Emergency - March 23, 2020
To: Deputy State Director of Emergency Management and Homeland Security – Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division, Michigan State Police; District 3 Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division Coordinator
While the Charter Township of Flushing has no known, confirmed cases of COVID-19, this township takes seriously its responsibility to ensure the public health, welfare and safety of its residents. It is projected that high number of Flushing Township residents will be affected by this widespread pandemic, especially our vulnerable older population. It is believed that the spread of this virus will affect our residents financially, economically, physically and possibly through the loss of life.
This virus pandemic is affecting many levels of the government, including closing government offices, schools, senior centers and businesses. It is forcing the closure of bars, restaurants, manufacturing plants, stores and more. Many of our residents will find themselves out of work and having a difficult time finding and purchasing food and other products necessary for daily living.
Therefore, as Township Supervisor of the Charter Township of Flushing, in accordance with Section 10 of the 1976 PA 390, as amended, I hereby declare that a “state of emergency” exists within our jurisdiction as of March 20, 2020 and that local resources are being utilized to the fullest possible extent. The response and recovery elements of our emergency operations plan have been activated.
