DETAILS
This course enables emergency management personnel and response and recovery personnel from all political jurisdictions to more effectively understand, activate, implement, and use the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) system. This course introduces participants to the EMAC process and assists them in gaining familiarity and competency with the EMAC system so that when an event occurs that requires activation of the EMAC system, they know how to proceed, and what documentation and sources of information to use for guidance in order to maximize use of all available resources.

Course Objectives:
  • Describe and apply the legal authorizations and stipulations in the EMAC law.
  • Describe the EMAC governance structure and member states' roles and responsibilities.
  • Apply the processes for requesting and offering assistance through the EMAC system.
  • Implement the mission-ready packaging and cost-estimation methodology.
  • Apply the recommended actions during each phase of the EMAC process.
  • Explain the EMAC levels of operation and EMAC Operations Management System.
  • Apply the processes and procedures for reimbursing Resource Providers.
Selection Criteria: Emergency management personnel and response and recovery personnel from all political jurisdictions who can be legally deployed through the EMAC system; persons officially responsible for requesting and providing EMAC assistance; and those individuals desiring a more comprehensive working knowledge of the EMAC system.

Prerequisites: Students should have a basic understanding of the fundamentals of emergency management and community preparedness.
