Alameda County Emergency Managers’ Association was founded in 1986 to ensure that emergency management professionals expand their mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery skills and share their knowledge with others within the emergency management community.
Membership in the Alameda County Emergency Managers’ Association is open to all persons who practice emergency management on behalf of public agencies within Alameda County. This includes cities, special districts, schools, public non-profit community-based organizations, and other quasi-governmental agencies whose primary mission includes disaster preparedness or response. Meetings are held on the first Thursday morning of each month between 9:30 a.m. and 12 Noon. Meeting locations vary and are included in the meeting announcements.
ALCO-EMA works closely with the Operational Area and with the Coastal Region of the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services to maximize training opportunities and offer assistance where needed.
