Office of Emergency Management
The Cheboygan County OEM was created in April 2020 to better serve the citizens of the county to comprehensively plan for and respond to and recover from all manner of disasters whether man-made or natural. In order to properly facilitate disaster management, CCOEM coordinates with federal, state, and local stakeholders to obtain and direct assets during an event.
Part of the CCOEM Director duties are to coordinate, train and educate in emergency management services in the county with public safety at the forefront.
Cheboygan County Emergency Management is continuing to monitor Cheboygan County and the State of Michigan Covid-19 cases. We are working with District Health Department #4 during this process in case any action is required. Department Health Department #4 is still offering vaccines for those that are interested.
