In 2001 the Grosse Ile Fire and Police Departments joined efforts and created a Command Center.  The Command Center is a fully computerized location that has access to the Reverse 911 system, Weather Station Grosse Ile, Outdoor Warning System (tornado sirens), Cable TV, AM radio station 1700, and large maps of the community and surrounding area.

The command center is equipped with a generator that keeps the public safety building up and running during and emergency, and has communication equipment for township official including radio coverage to all police and fire personnel.

In the near future we will be upgrading our system to enable live feeds back to the Command Center, which will allow command staff to make a real time decision on a course of action.

The Command Center has been activated during emergency on the island, gratefully it does not get a lot of use, however, it is ready upon demand.
