St. Clair Special Emergency Services Association

Welcome to St. Clair Special Emergency Services Association.  We are an all-volunteer not-for-profit partnership between local Illinois government, concerned citizens, industry professionals, organized labor, fire/police departments, and the CENCOM system. As a Tier One emergency response team in the State of Illinois, Special Emergency Services enhances public safety by assisting first responders with highly specialized expertise and technical equipment (i.e., HAZMAT Response, Technical Rescue Response, K-9 Search and a full RMERT team.), during times of crisis.


SCSESA raises funds through private donations and by sponsoring fundraising events. We need your support and financial contributions to successfully achieve our mission of educating and protecting the citizens of Southern Illinois and surrounding areas during special emergency situations.
