Testing Confirms Flat Rock 'Zone 1' Clear of Impact from Ford Gas Leak, Wayne County Recommends most residents can return Home

Clearance follows testing, analysis of Air quality in serwers by state and county health officials.

Statement (9/23/2021) —

Ford knows the past few weeks have been difficult for residents of Flat Rock’s designated Zones 1 and 2, and we feel badly about problems caused by the incident at our Flat Rock Assembly Plant.  So, like you, we are delighted that, after testing and analyzing air quality in the areas, the Wayne County Health Department and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services have determined there is no longer a risk to the indoor air of homes and businesses in either zone (with the exception of residents of a few homes in Zone 1) – and most residents who evacuated can return home.  We want their moves home to be smooth and encourage people to call 734-782-2455, Extension 1104 or 1105, when they are ready to arrange for hotel checkout or if they have hotel-related needs.  Ford will continue to provide hotel accommodations for neighbors who requested testing at their homes and are still awaiting written results.


We take seriously our responsibilities as a corporate citizen and to protect the health and safety of our people, our communities, and the environment. We apologize for the fuel leak and the huge inconvenience to our neighbors in Flat Rock. We are committed to making it right — protecting and caring for people who have been affected by the issue; and cleaning up so that people can return to their homes as soon as possible.
