The Council on Emergency Management

The Council on Emergency Management (CEMT) is a networking-only Council and is one of three security-related Councils run by the Conference Board.

The Council on Emergency Management focuses on effective operational practices and key strategic issues related to emergency management.

CEMT provides valuable networking, learning, and leadership development opportunities for individuals responsible for emergency management and operational continuity who are focused on maximizing resilience within their organizations. CEMT also enables members to broaden their understanding of risk factors and to exchange insights.

Key objectives

  • Explore leading practices in emergency management and establish critical relations among first responders and private and public sector organizations.
  • Build a deeper understanding of the threats facing Canadian organizations and model the cross-sectoral approach that is essential for building resiliency.

“The Council on Emergency Management is unique and provides learning and sharing opportunities that you won’t get at industry conferences and seminars. The peer-to-peer learning is something I can’t afford not to be part of.”

–Tom Sampson, Chief, Calgary Emergency Management Agency
