CHHS Announces Three Staff Members Designated as New Certified Emergency Managers
CHHS would like to congratulate Senior Staff members Birch Barron, Joseph Corona and Lisa Crow, who have this year earned recognition from the International Association of Emergency Managers by being among the group of professionals designated Certified Emergency Manager (CEM®). This is the highest honor of professional achievement available from the Association which has in its membership more than 9,000 emergency managers representing professionals whose goals are saving lives and protecting property and the environment during emergencies and disasters.
All three qualified as a CEM® by submitting an extensive credentials package giving personal and professional background achievements and successfully completing a Management Essay and a written examination. In order to maintain certification, they must continue a program of professional development over successive five-year periods in the future. Thus, this is an honor neither easily earned nor maintained.
The CEM® designation presently is held by 2,504 men and women in the emergency management profession. As a CEMs, they demonstrated a high level of competence and ethical fitness for emergency management.
CHHS is extremely proud to have these individuals on staff.
