The Local Emergency Management Accreditation Program is a voluntary program that provides local emergency management offices in New York State a mechanism to evaluate and enhance the overall proficiency of their agency.
Accreditation is a formal recognition that an office's policies and practices meet or exceed standards in all primary aspects of emergency management, to include preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation.
To become accredited, Counties must meet a variety of emergency management standards developed by the work of the Accreditation Council.
Assessors are responsible for conducting the onsite and document reviews as part of the accreditation process. Find assessor qualifications and how to apply.
