The Illinois Emergency Management Agency could be getting a name change. Governor Pritzker submitted an Executive Order to change the official name of the agency to the Illinois Emergency Management Agency and Office of Homeland Security. This change will allow IEMA-OHS to better mobilize and coordinate response efforts during any future disasters and emergencies. The order goes into law once it is approved by the Illinois House and Senate.
