Annual Awards Categories


RI Association Emergency Management Professional of the Year

This Association award recognizes that that there are exceptional emergency management professionals in all areas of the private and public sector. The person recognized for this award should be a leader responsible for emergency management for their community, facility, educational establishment, non-profit, etc. They should be decisionmakers/leaders actively involved in planning, response, health, or mitigation efforts in their respective area. This award is NOT the Emergency Manager of the Year Award presented by RI EMA. The winner of this award, however, will automatically be recommended for the Emergency Management Director of the year. Their name will be submitted on behalf of the Association for consideration. (Please note that the association has historically provided a name to the RI Emergency Management Agency for their consideration. This nomination process formalizes the Association process)
