The Tinley Park Emergency Management Agency (EMA) has been in existence since the early 1950s. Today, EMA provides both emergency and nonemergency support to other Village public safety agencies. EMA also provides mutual aid support to other community and township-based emergency services units.
The Tinley Park EMA is a community-oriented organization that assists other groups with community and area events. The organization is comprised of local citizens like yourself. Each is of varying age, occupation, skill level and lifestyle.
All EMA members are high-spirited volunteers who are concerned with fulfilling their role in the community, which is to deal with any emergency or disaster situation that they are called upon to handle.
The mission of the Tinley Park Emergency Management Agency is to:
- Disseminate emergency preparedness information to the public so that citizens may lessen the impact of and be better prepared in the event of an emergency/disaster
- Ensure that the Village has a workable, updated Emergency Preparedness Plan, and that said plan is tested periodically to efficiently coordinate the response and mitigation of emergency/disaster situations
- Provide other Village public safety agencies, the community and mutual aid communities with a competent, trained and professional organization that is able to respond to any emergency situation requiring our assistance
