Document Description Publication Number
The plan developed and continuously maintained by the Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division, Department of State Police (MSP/EMHSD), pursuant to 1976 PA 390, as amended, for the purpose of coordinating the emergency management and homeland security activities of prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery within the state. The MEMP consists of two introductory sections (i.e., Planning Preliminaries; Emergency Management System), eight Emergency Support Functions (ESFs), 23 Disaster-Specific Procedures, and three primary Support Plans (i.e., Evacuation and Mass Shelter Support; Animal Care Support; Recovery Support). The MEMP is supported by other state-level, function-specific plans, including but not limited to those that address: 1) continuity of government and continuity of operations; 2) disaster logistics management; 3) disaster debris management; 4) disaster donations management; 5) hazard mitigation; 6) emergency repatriation; 7) damage assessment; and 8) mass fatality management.

Michigan Rapid Assessment Team Assignments and Standard Operating Procedures
This new plan combines the previously-separate "Michigan Disaster Donations Management Plan" (formerly MSP/EMHSD Publication 107) and "Michigan Disaster Logistics Management Plan" (formerly MSP/EMHSD Publication 108) into a single document, in recognition of the many organizational and operational commonalities that exist between the two disaster functions. The new plan incorporates many "lessons learned" from the State's 2005 Hurricane Katrina donations management operation; fully utilizes the logistics and donations management capabilities of the Michigan Critical Incident Management System (MI CIMS); prescribes volunteer management systems that can be put in place at the state and local levels; and aligns state-level operations with the suggested local counterpart systems described in MSP/EMHSD Publication 107a, "Local Disaster Logistics and Donations Management Planning Handbook" and its companion plan development template, which were web-posted in October 2012.
