What Members are Saying

“Key private sector companies are always willing to help communities in crisis. PSEMA serves as an excellent resource for private sector to come together to offer help or receive critical information or support during times of crisis.  They were instrumental in our response to Hurricane Ian in 2022 by providing key information and resources.”
