Privacy Statement

PURPOSE: The FEMA Student Identification (SID) number is used as the unique individual identifier for all applicants requesting training at FEMA training facilities. The FEMA SID number is used as the applicant’s unique student identifier for the following areas: training records and continuing education credit through the International Association for Continuing Education and Training. Some facilities may still require the social security number for training medical records, travel authorizations, and travel reimbursement.

ROUTINE USES: The FEMA SID number is stored for a minimum of 40 years. This information is used by FEMA staff and its training partners on a need to know basis for Official Administrative purposes only. Release of an individual’s FEMA SID number or other personally identifiable information will not be granted to any person or agency outside of FEMA or its training partners without a written request for the information and written permission from the applicant, staff or faculty member.

DISCLOSURE IS VOLUNTARY: Disclosure is voluntary. Although without disclosure of your personal information we cannot create a unique FEMA SID number to use as a unique identifier in place of your social security number. Without a FEMA SID you may not be eligible for training at FEMA training facilities.
