GROVELAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Officials have broken ground in northern Oakland County on a new storage site for emergency equipment used in responding to natural or man-made disasters.

The Mutual Aid Box Alarm System site in Groveland Township was announced Thursday by Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson and township officials.

The user-driven system streamlines the requesting and providing of emergency and fire services resources across Michigan for mutual aid for major fires, train derailments, tornados, wildfires and terrorism.

The 17,000-square-foot warehouse is expected to be operational by late this year. Mobile hospitals, kitchens, generators and other equipment now are housed at the Oakland County International Airport.

Groveland Township is northwest of Detroit.
