NYS Achieves Full EMS Accreditation
New York State’s emergency management programs achieve full accreditation from the National Emergency Management Accreditation Program. This marks the third time since 2004 that New York has successfully achieved accreditation and surpassed standards set by the nationally-recognized program. The accreditation process examines elements of personnel, resources and communications from a variety of agencies and organizations responsible for preparing for and responding to disasters. EMAP accreditation is valid for five years.
