Emergency Management Program Accreditation Guide

The EMI SIG-developed draft Emergency Management Program Accreditation Guide (pdf) is now available for informal review and comment. Comments on the draft should be sent to Dave Freshwater by e-mail at david.freshwater@nnsa.doe.gov.

The next step in establishing an accreditation program is to conduct a pilot test at a volunteer site. Volunteers for the pilot should contact:

Jim Fairobent, Director of Emergency Management and Policy (NA-41)
Phone: 202-586-8759
Email: jim.fairobent@nnsa.doe.gov

The draft guidance will not be finalized until after the pilot test is conducted.

Emergency Management Updates

The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) used Emergency Management Updates as one way of maintaining communications with the emergency management community at the DOE/NNSA sites and facilities. These updates are issued periodically on emergency management topics of interest.
