Tracy A. Page, from the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office and Kendall County Emergency Management Agency, was recently recognized by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency for successfully renewal of her Illinois Professional Emergency Manager Accreditation Program certificate.
The IPEM certification is the highest distinction that can be received by an emergency management professional from the state of Illinois.
Rigid requirements must be met including classroom and online training courses covering a wide variety of emergency management related subjects and documentation identifying that the person served in a lead role during a preparedness exercise or a real event.
The recognition was made by James Joseph, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency director, and Dawn Cook, Illinois Emergency Services Management Association vice president, at the annual Illinois Emergency Management Training Summit, held Sept. 5-7 in Springfield.
