Myrtle Beach’s Glatki receives AEM certification...

Travis Glatki, emergency manager for the City of Myrtle Beach, has earned his Associate Emergency Manager designation from the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM). This is the second-highest honor available from the association, which has more than 6,000 members.

The AEM designation is held by only 259 men and women internationally in the emergency management profession. As an AEM, Glatki demonstrated a high level of confidence and ethical fitness for emergency management, according to a release from the IAEM.

Glatki submitted an extensive credentials package with personal and professional achievements. He then completed a management essay and a written examination to earn the AEM certification. To maintain certification, he must continue his professional development over successive five-year periods.

Congratulations, Travis, on behalf of our staff, residents, businesses and visitors! The IAEM represents emergency management professionals whose goals are saving lives and protecting property and the environment during emergencies and disasters.
