About the Association

Association SealThe Emergency Management Association of McLean County was formed for the following purposes:

  • Primarily support the McLean County Emergency Management Agency.
  • Provide an avenue for submitting grant proposals and receiving awarded grants.
  • Provide an avenue for receiving pecuniary donations.
  • Provide donations and/or grants to public safety organizations in McLean County.
Questions often arise about the difference between the McLean County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) and the Emergency Management Association of McLean County. The McLean County Emergency Management Agency is the official governmental agency that responds to / provides support for emergencies and disasters. All staff members, paid and volunteer, are sworn McLean County Emergency Management Agency officials under the governmental department within McLean County.

The Emergency Management Association of McLean County, on the other hand, is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that provides grants and funding opportunities to the McLean County Emergency Management Agency in support of its mission. The Association has no emergency response authority or mandate and owns no response assets. Its membership consists of Operations and Search and Rescue Division staff who run the Association independently but with an eye towards the needs of the McLean County Emergency Management Agency.
