Emergency Management Coordinator: Pennsylvania Title 35 requires all political subdivisions (municipalities) to appoint an Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC) to oversee planning, training, and preparation during non-disaster times and to act as the coordinator in the Emergency operations Center (EOC) during times of disasters. The responsibilities placed on this individual are significant. The EMC is the primary agent for the municipality’s elected officials and is invaluable when disaster strikes. Butler County Emergency Services provides ongoing training programs which help Emergency Municipal Coordinators develop skills in problem solving and critical thinking when presented with a hazard or disaster. In fulfilling its legislated responsibility to support in-service training to county and municipal EMCs, Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) has developed a series of certification levels for coordinators, deputy coordinators, and staff members at the local and county level. The levels of certification are: Basic, Advanced and Professional. We are grateful to the men and women who volunteer their time to be an Emergency Municipal Coordinator and the dedication they put forth in safeguarding their communities! If you are interested in Emergency Management and/or volunteer opportunities, please contact our EMC through Clinton Township at 724-352-9000.
