Oregon Emergency Management Association

The Oregon Certified Emergency Management Program (ORCEMS) was created to raise and maintain professional standards in emergency management and to certify achievement of that standard within the profession within Oregon. The program was developed in a cooperative effort between the Oregon Emergency Management (OEM), and the Oregon Emergency Management Association (OEMA) and requires extensive documentation of the applicant's qualifications, experience and training. Final program packages submitted by an applicant will be reviewed and approved by a committee of their peers.
