Catskill Hudson AHEC Upcoming Events

Emergency Responder Leadership Academy

In 2004, Catskill Hudson AHEC presented its first EMS Leadership Academy, which was a two-part, professional development workshop for EMS captains, officers, and others in or about to be placed in a position of leadership in their agency.  In 2011, under the guidance of the Development Committee, the program name was changed to the Emergency Responder Leadership Academy to better reflect the evolution of the program’s expanding focus and growing audience.

Throughout the years, this program has continued to develop unique learning experiences presented by experienced leaders in emergency response. Topics continue to focus on professional development in areas that are critical to every emergency services long-term success, such as, administration, supervision, recruitment and retention, public relations, budgeting, service excellence, strategic planning, communication, and safety, as well as changing agency roles and preparedness for future challenges. 

The next Emergency Responder leadership Academy is planned for May 1, 2020.  If you would like to receive information for Emergency Responder Leadership Academy, please email your contact information to or call to speak with our staff at (845) 883-7260.
