NEMA's EMAC staff conducts WebinarsWebinars

We offer webinars on a variety of  topics related to the EMAC and mutual aid. The objective is to involve multiple disciplines in the mutual aid discussion, and to develop new and innovative mutual aid capabilities, as well as, a better understanding by all parties on how to properly utilize the existing EMAC system. Webinars are archived, and can be viewed anytime from the EMAC webpage. Visit the EMAC webinar archives.

National Coordinating State Training & Exercise
Annually, NEMA provides the incoming EMAC Executive Task Force Chair and National Coordinating State training and an exercise prior to the annual change of leadership.

This enables the new leadership to transition effortlessly into the important roles and responsibilities of EMAC system management.  This training and exercise takes place prior to the NEMA Mid-Year Forum at which time EMAC Executive Task Force leadership transitions.


In addition to courses on EMAC that the state emergency management agency may develop, the State EMA can download courses developed by NEMA to use within their state.

The State and Resource Provider Guide to Implementing EMAC is a template course that can be customized by the State EMA to show how the Compact is implemented within their state. The Mission Ready Package (MRP) Workshop provides a walkthrough of how to develop an MRP.

Executive Training
Offered as part of the New State Emergency Management Directors Course through the Emergency Management Institute (EMI) at Emmitsburg, Maryland, The New State Emergency Management Directors Course offered through EMI offers two modules on EMAC.

The first session is an online webinar that focuses on the State Director responsibilities to EMAC.   The second is a face-to-face session on the operational aspects of implementing EMAC as a Requesting and Assisting State.
