Disaster Shelter

When disaster strikes, people are sometimes away from home or unable to stay in their own homes. Bay Township has established a small shelter for such a situation. The shelter is accredited by the American Red Cross and Disaster Team members also received their training from that organization.

The township has a pantry stocked with basic foods, emergency water supply, cots, blankets and pillows to accommodate about ten people. Battery-operated lighting and auxiliary power has been provided.

Every two years the pantry foods are inventoried and replaced if necessary. The Disaster Shelter team members run through a short drill to recap where supplies and equipment are stored and to review emergency procedures.

Veterans' Plaque

Bay Township maintains a “VETERANS’ PLAQUE” in the township hall. This lists the names of township residents who were in active military service. For names to be included on the plaque, contact Fiscal Officer Bonnie Kaspar at 419-734-2930.
