Editorial Profile

The IAEM Bulletin, the official monthly newsletter of the International Association of Emergency Managers, publishes articles from the emergency management community, which interest and impact the profession. The IAEM Bulletin offers a forum for insights and perspectives on emergency management and reports on emergency management in practice. It also serves as the voice of IAEM and a source of information on association activities. The IAEM Bulletin is in its 41st year of continuous publication.


The IAEM Bulletin is distributed monthly to the 6,000+ members of IAEM, plus others with government and legislative roles in emergency management.
