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.
