The state of Michigan has broken ground on a new $22 million emergency operations center in the Lansing area.
Officials expect the building to open in November 2015 and say it will be “hardened” to withstand natural disasters so response efforts can be coordinated in emergencies.
The state current’s emergency center is in leased space in Lansing. The Michigan State Police’s Emergency Management & Homeland Security Division says it will be easier and less expensive to install upgraded technology in the new center.
Gov. Rick Snyder helped break ground on the project Thursday.
