In cooperation with the Association of State & Territorial Health Officials and the National Association of County & City Health Officials, NEMA has developed two Webinars focused on EMAC and public health and medical professionals.
First, learn EMAC basics through the 47-minute video "EMAC: A Basic Understanding & Use of the System by Public Health & Medical Professionals." This session was delivered by Leon Shaifer, EMAC Senior Advisor.
Then watch "Use of the EMAC System by Public Health & Medical Professionals: A Discussion," a 57-minute session with panelists Mary Duley (RN, MA), Kathy Robinson (RN, EMT-P), and Martha Salyers (MD, MPH, CEM). Leon Shaifer facilitates this session.
In this webinar, Tom McAllister, Director of the Office of Response, Mississippi Emergency Management Agency, and Jim Craig, Public Health Preparedness Director, Mississippi State Department of Health will discuss EMAC planning in support of Mississippi's Emergency Support Function #8, the Public Health and Medical Services Annex. Tom and Jim will also discuss how Mississippi developed Mission Ready Packaging medical and public health resources and review how the state provides assistance and coordination of EMAC resources in response to public health and disaster medical care needs.
