Welcome to MI Emergency Preparedness

This web page (www.miep.us) is a work in progress. This website is about 40% complete.



The beauty of the tall trees and the natural privacy of being surrounded by water are just two reasons that most of us have chosen to live on Marrowstone Island. But these two facts make us uniquely vulnerable to a major event. Fallen trees could damage our homes, block our roads and take down our power and telephone lines. Being an island could partially or totally isolate us from the peninsula and outside services. We could lose the bridge, the causeway, or most of the boats to a major event. Local, State and Federal aid could be unavailable to us for anywhere from days to a month or more.

Regardless of the source of the emergency, it is prudent that we design our Marrowstone Island Emergency Preparedness (EP) plan using ALL of the events described in this worst case scenario. Please read it and try to imagine what it would feel like.

Please take a few minutes to click on the links in the left sidebar. Click on Five Sections to identify your Section and Area. Your Section and/or Area Coordinator will help you identify your Neighborhood designation. Please click here to volunteer to be a Neighborhood Coordinator or alternate. See responsibilities here.

The MIEP Team will be developing Emergency Response Plan templates that you can use.

Create or buy your Grab and Go Bag.

Review the Emergency Preparedness Tips (EPTs) and Resources.

And make sure we can find you and get to you in time by maintaining your 911 Signs and Access to your driveway and home.

 Emergency Preparedness can make all the difference. Please join your neighbors and other Islanders in this effort.
