The FEMA Region 6 Community Preparedness Working Group (CPWG) is pleased to announce the Community Preparedness Award. This award was created to recognize a local program, group or individual that has exhibited outstanding efforts in community preparedness. The award recipient will be chosen at the statewide level and recognized by the Texas Citizen Corps Program. That recipient will then be submitted for consideration at the FEMA Region 6 level alongside the other Region 6 state selections. Community Preparedness Award Application
Texas Youth Preparedness Council Application Now Open (Due by March 31, 2019)
Do you know a high school student who is passionate about emergency preparedness and community resilience? If so, they should apply to be on the Texas Youth Preparedness Council.
The Texas Youth Preparedness Council is a statewide youth group made up of youth leaders from across the state who are interested in preparedness and making their communities more resilient. The mission of the council is to engage and empower youth in individual and community preparedness and activities and roles. The council provides an opportunity for Texas high school students to enhance their knowledge of preparedness and develop leadership skills that will help them in addressing the needs of their communities. Youth will work on local preparedness projects, be ambassadors for youth preparedness on the state level, and provide a unique prospective to state agencies interested in preparedness.
National Emergency Management Advanced Academy (NEMAA)
Overview/FY20 Application Process
NEMAA is designed for mid-level managers/professionals with a minimum of three (3) years’ experience in an Emergency Management (EM) position who want to advance their skills. Participants learn skills critical to performing EM responsibilities, such as program management and oversight, effective communication at all levels, integrated collaboration, and strategic thinking.
NEMAA provides participants the opportunity to demonstrate their critical thinking ability through a guided NEMAA Paper. Students apply the key
learning concepts from the NEMAA curriculum relative to their own strengths and weaknesses, their organizations, and their own performance
environments. For more information, visit our website at:
IAEM Revised Study Guide (AEM/CEM Exam)
IAEM is launching an updated certification exam on Mar. 18, 2019. Individuals planning to take the AEM®/CEM® Exam after Mar. 18, 2019, should access the revised study guide from the IAEM website and review the updated resource list to prepare for the new exam.
Advanced Professional Series (APS)
The FEMA Advanced Professional Series Certificate of Completion will no longer be issued and signed by FEMA effective 12/31/2018. The State will continue to provide a State Managed APS Program. This will allow the States to tailor their APS to meet their State needs. There will still be a standard set of core courses (both required and elective). We are working with FEMA Region VI Training Managers to determine best course of action for the Region. Certificates will still be issued, but coming directly from the State Director versus the EMI Superintendent. More information to follow as it becomes available.
