NVERS exists as an organization to enhance all facets of emergency preparedness of local response agencies and their partners. While our stakeholders are committed to our Mission, they also have limited resources and a primary responsibility to their respective jurisdictions and agencies. Having a dedicated staff allows NVERS to enact the policies and programs developed by our Board of Directors and Steering Committee, support our stakeholders directly, and manage the projects that help us achieve strategic priorities.
