Updated: March 1, 2013 7:00AM



Tinley Park’s Emergency Management Agency has received state accreditation, making it one of four agencies in Cook County to get the honor.

The program received the accreditation in accordance with the Illinois Emergency Management Act. In addition, the village’s emergency operations plan was approved with no deficiencies to effectively respond to any disaster or emergency situations.

Village Trustee Brian Maher said the accreditation “confirms that Tinley Park is prepared.”
