The mission of the Metro Lansing Special Operations Team (Metro Team) is to rapidly respond to and/or assist jurisdictions in effectively addressing the consequences of an incident/event involving chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE), toxic industrial chemical release/spill, or a technical rescue operation in collaboration with and supported by local first responders. The response and assistance may include pre-deployment of assets to assist in crisis management activities due to a potential threat.
The Metro Lansing Special Operations Team is designed to support local emergency response systems, but is not intended to replace those system functions normally performed by the local first responders. Formal requests for assistance will flow through the local Incident Management System (IMS).


The mission of the Metro Lansing Fire Training is to consolidate and share fire training resources and assets to provide efficient and economical training for the Metro Lansing Fire Departments. This will be accomplished through the utilization of the collective knowledge and experience of trained and certified personnel of these member departments. This training will be accomplished through the employment of standardized procedures and practices which are invaluable in "mutual aid" responses and specific to the Metro Lansing Fire Department jurisdictions. The areas of training will include but are not limited to fire, emergency medical services, hazardous materials and technical rescue. This training agreement has the full support and collaboration of the Metro Lansing Fire Departments.


"Our member departments consist of multi-disciplined personnel who are prepared to mitigate a diverse variety of emergency responses."
