SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WXYZ) — The City of Southfield is looking for volunteers to help out in their Emergency Management Division.

Volunteers take charge serving the community by "providing traffic control for special events, assisting the Southfield Police and Fire departments when requested for emergencies and other projects as needed."

To qualify volunteers must be age 18 and up, physically able to perform required tasks as well as submit a background and driving record check.

“Volunteering with the Emergency Management Division is a great way to give back to the community,” commented Director of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness Division Justin Beck. “Many of our volunteers are retirees in addition to a wide variety of people of all ages and backgrounds. It’s a great way to learn something new while getting connected to other likeminded individuals.”
