Today marks NCEMS Director Robert Mateff’s last day of employment with Northampton County. After 25 years of distinguished service to the residents of Northampton County, Bob will be leaving to assume the role of Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency Deputy Director for 911. Bob served Northampton County as our first Director of the Division of Emergency Management Services after its creation in 2008. Prior to that, Bob held numerous roles within the Northampton County Sheriff’s Department including Deputy Sheriff, tele-communicator, and 911 Deputy Director. Bob’s dedication to the emergency management and emergency communications professions are evident by his distinction as both an Emergency Number Professional (ENP) and Certified Emergency Manager (CEM).

Everyone at NCEMS would like to wish Bob congratulations on his transition to a new and exciting career! We extend our sincere gratitude for your exceptional leadership, integrity, and professionalism. Your distinguished commitment to excellence will be forever preserved in our hearts and our minds. Your zeal for our institution has made it a pleasure and an honor to have served beside such an exemplar.


Good Luck Bob!
