The EMAC Advisory Group, established in 2006, was identified as a need in the after-action report from Hurricane Katrina. Prior to 2004, EMAC response was comprised of state emergency management and National Guard personnel. Following 2004, the potential of EMAC was realized, and EMAC is used today for all response and recovery personnel.
National organizations have a venue through the EMAC Advisory Group to work in coordination with the EMAC Committee membership to continually improve EMAC throughout the nation. EMAC Advisory Group Mission: To facilitate the effective integration of multi-discipline emergency response and recovery assets for nationwide mutual aid through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact.
