BENTON TOWNSHIP — Berrien County has remained in a good position during the COVID-19 pandemic, thanks in part to its Emergency Operations Center.

Located in Benton Township, the EOC has served as the home base for local disaster response since 2006. It’s gradually been updated over the years to support a collaboration among different departments that keep the county running in the midst of a crisis.
