Community Alert System
Dear Grosse Ile Resident,
The Grosse Ile Fire Department Community Education Program is pleased to introduce a new safety system to our community. It's called the Community Alert System, a state-of-the-art siren system to be operational in the Township by Winter 2001. The Community Alert System is a key component of the Safe and Sound Program sponsored by the Grosse Ile Fire Department. It enhances existing safety equipment and emergency procedures.
On this website you will find:
- a brochure that describes the Safe and Sound Program and siren system,
- a Shelter-In-Place instruction sheet,
- a glossary of terms,
- and general questions and answers about the program.
(All documents are in Adobe PDF format.)
Audio tests of the system are to be conducted on the first Saturday each month at noon. Along with the new outdoor warning system, the Grosse Ile Fire Department has added a private radio station that will assist us in getting emergency messages to the community: G.I. 1700 AM
Please take a few moments to review this information and discuss it with family members and friends. In the coming weeks and months, we will be in touch with you about additional Safe and Sound activities.
In the meantime, please call Community Alert System Information(734) 676-7157 or 676-5386, if you have any questions.
