Municipal Managers, Emergency Management Coordinators, Police Chiefs, Fire Chiefs, EMS Captains, ARES/RACES,

Attached is a letter regarding the status of the Emergency Responder Credentialing program in Chester County.  Please distribute this information to those that are a part
of the system. While we are temporarily on hold while the Federal government finalizes their standards, the project will eventually move forward.

Thank you for your help and support as we work through this process.

  This is a state wide, Emergency Responder Credentialing, effort. Chester County has a major push on to get this done. For information use the links below. We need as many people as soon as possible to log in.

  Currently there are only two states particpating BUT that will be changing.

  The First Step was done by the fire company who submitted your name and DOB. The Second Step is to get your information into the system. The Third Step will be pictures, fingerprints, etc.
