Buffalo_New_York_aerial_viewWelcome to Erie County, Division of Emergency Management Civil Defense/Disaster Preparedness Enrollment Page

The Civil Defense/Disaster Preparedness Division executes the County plan for civil defense and disaster relief before, during and after any type of natural, man-made disaster or war time situation. Erie County joined the City of Buffalo in 2008 to expand the CEAS program to entire County.

Corporate Emergency Access System (CEAS) is a turnkey pre-event credentialing program, provided at no cost to governments, that allows critical business employees to travel through or gain access to restricted areas following a disaster or serious emergency. Credentialing is done through the use of a common identification card recognized by law enforcement and emergency management officials.
