Welcome to the Illinois Emergency Services Management Association website. Our goal for this site is to provide the best possible online information sharing platform to support our members and local emergency managers throughout the State of Illinois. Please take advantage of the many useful items contained within the site and your IESMA member login section.

IESMA is the voice of local emergency management in Illinois. Since 1965 it has been our mission to coordinate the efforts of our members in a common cause to help protect the lives and property of those we serve. Should you require any additional information that is not contained on this website, please contact your IESMA Regional Vice President or a member of our Executive Staff.

I truly hope you find this site beneficial and we look forward to serving you for many years to come.

Online Contest Launched to Raise Awareness of Weather Alert Radios

One key to surviving disasters is getting timely warnings. NOAA all-hazards weather alert radios are a good way to receive potentially life-saving notices of approaching severe weather and other hazards 24 hours a day. IEMA and IESMA are sponsoring a contest to raise awareness of weather alert radios. The contest runs from April 22 – May 22 and is open to all Illinois residents. To participate, click on the link below, read the narrative and take a short quiz. Then complete the entry form and click “submit.” A total of 100 NOAA weather alert radios will be awarded.
