Welcome to the Montgomery County Emergency Management Agency(MCEMA). Our agency was originally created as Civil Defense and later became Emergency Services and Disaster Agency.  The name of the department was changed to Montgomery County Emergency Management Agency (MCEMA) in 2005 to more accurately reflect its responsibilities. The agency established within County Government is responsible for coordinating the emergency and disaster mitigation, as well as preparedness, planning, response and recovery efforts of the County and its political subdivisions in conjunction with the State of Illinois, Federal Government, private organizations, businesses, and the public. Our EMA is comprised of many great EMA Volunteers. Our Volunteer Teams are the core of the following teams:

  • Damage Assessment
  • Drone
  • Incident management
  • Search & Rescue
