How to recognize an official member of the water response team

Posted: Updated:

By the end of Friday, water response teams will have canvassed all of the city of Flint and provided free bottled water, filters, water replacement cartridges and water testing kits.

At least 30,770 homes in the city have either been visited by the response team, or someone from a home has visited a water resource site to get supplies.

 “While we have visited every part of the city, we know we have not yet reached every home, so our work is not done,” stated Capt. Chris Kelenske, Deputy State Director of Emergency Management and Homeland Security and commander of the Michigan State Police Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division. “Water response teams will continue door-to-door visits until we are sure every Flint resident has the safe water resources they need.”

Team members, made up of city, county and state personnel, American Red Cross and volunteers, as well as National Guard Soldiers and Airmen, will has homeowners a series of questions.

All team members will also wear official credentialed badges with a State of Michigan seal hologram so they can be easily identified. They will also not ask to go into a home, or request any money.
