Notes from MFFTC meetings
The Michigan State Police, Emergency Management and Homeland Security Training Center (EMHSTC) is working daily to identify the hazardous materials training needs
within our great state. We have developed a survey which contains questions that will allow you to provide us vital feedback that will guide future course offerings as well as best use of
federal grant funds.
Please provide your professional opinion to assist us in presenting practical and useful courses to you. We take your feedback seriously and strive to continuously improve our services.
Please click here to take the survey. Act today as the survey closes on May 7.
If you have additional feedback or would like to speak to someone from the EMHSTC, please feel free to contact us at EMHSTC@michigan.gov or 517-284-3821. Thank you so much for your dedication to the residents of Michigan and for your time and assistance in bringing valuable training to our state.
