Session Name: Response~~Emergency Management Assistance Compact: The Process of EMAC
The Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC), established in 1996 stands today as the corner stone of mutual aid. The EMAC aid agreement and partnership between member states exist because all states share a common enemy: the threat of disaster. EMAC is the first national disaster relief compact since the Civil Defense and Disaster Compact of 1950 to be ratified by Congress. All 50 states, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Island have enacted legislation to become EMAC members. The strength of EMAC, and the quality that distinguishes it from other plans and compacts, lies in its ability to move any resource from state to state, including medical resources. During hurricanes, access to essential resources, enable local government to manage emergencies more effectively. This training will focus on the 5 phase EMAC process, Pre-Event Preparation, Activation, Request & Offer, Response and Reimbursement, which enables local government to request and provide assistance through EMAC more effectively. This session will also clarify specific actions taken by local government within each phase as well as the concept of Mission Ready Packaging, part of pre-event preparation: and whose use will greatly facilitate identifying, mobilizing and deploying city, county and state resources for both intrastate and interstate. This session will conclude with an overview of initiating the reimbursement phase with resource providers, assisting state and deployed personnel.
