Support our first responders and join CANTEEN!
Canteen responds to any first responder request to provide hydration, food, and respite care. They medically monitor responders and those on scene and provide emotional support.
Canteen provides support to other teams and agencies at drills and exercises.
Ottawa County Canteen was created in 2020 by volunteers within Ottawa County Emergency Management when the previously offered Canteen service was abruptly discontinued due to COVID. Feeling this was a vital service that was needed, these volunteers stepped up and created a system to operate from.
Most commonly they are called to scenes of long duration which can range from traffic accidents, law enforcement stand-offs, fires, or drownings. They respond at all hours of the day or night operating out of their own vehicles.Contact Us
