Ready to Respond Community

NEW! Ready to Respond Community Designation

Illinois' Ready to Respond Community Program is designed to recognize the preparedness efforts of communities statewide. Ready to Respond Community recognizes a community’s acceptance and achievement of criterion developed by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency and endorsed by the statewide association of local emergency managers, the Illinois Emergency Services Management Association for a better prepared community.

The Ready Community Application Criteria is currently under revisions. If you have any questions, please contact Abby Damm at
