The City of Geneva Emergency Management Agency (GEMA) is seeking volunteers to join our team. Volunteers can expect to respond to community emergencies that include severe weather events, major fire and police activities, traffic management, festival assistance, and other emergency-related tasks.
The agency assists the Geneva Fire and Police departments, as well as key community organizations including the Geneva Chamber of Commerce and Geneva Park District. GEMA also works with emergency management agencies at the municipal, county, state, and federal levels.
The City is seeking like-minded, community-oriented volunteers. Members must be at least 18 years old, a high school graduate (or GED), have a valid Illinois driver's license, live within close proximity of Geneva, and be able to pass an in-person interview and background check. Other expectations include regular attendance at monthly planning and training meetings, and volunteer participation for a majority of the agency's emergency call-outs and planned events.
Individuals interested in learning more about the Geneva Emergency Management Agency may contact Fire Chief Mike Antenore by calling 630-232-2530 or sending him an email.
