Mission Ready Package Templates for IMTs

In 2023, NEMA partnered with the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) to develop templates for the development of Mission Ready Packages (MRPs).  MRPs are key to expediting the mutual aid request and offer process and ensuring all mission related expenses are accounted for and paid during reimbursement.

Incident Management

Did you know that local governments can create Mission Ready Packages? Teams that have been approved by the state emergency management agency may deploy under EMAC to help in recovery operations to assist with restoration efforts as the result of a disaster.

A local government's recovery assistance package may have a mission of

  • Communications restoration
  • Finance restoration/FEMA reimbursement
  • Recovery coordination
  • Building and damage assessments
  • Utility restoration efforts

EMAC's Benefits

  • Fast and Flexible Assistance
  • All Hazards - All Disciplines
  • Resources deploy through the state emergency management agencies of their respective states allowing for a coordinated deployment
  • Deployments are coordinated with the federal response to avoid duplication and overlap
