The 911 Coordinator and staff work together with the cities and townships within Gogebic County
to review and investigate addressing issues such as addresses, routing, mapping or MSAG and delegate
them to the correct department for resolution. We also preform field research for addresses, location name,
house numbers and street sign verification ensuring the 911 databases are current and up to date.

The Emergency Management Coordinator and staff preform administrative and technical work in the development,
implementation and coordination of Gogebic County’s Emergency Management Program. Our office reviews, changes
and/or develops current and new plans and procedures as needed in Emergency Management and Hazmat. We organize
disaster drills and exercises and review the results and make improvements as needed.
