G-430: Emergency Management Assistance Compact: Introduction

January 15, 2008

The Maine Emergency Management Agency will be hosting a training seminar on the National Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC), its function and how the State Of Maine is involved in the process.

The primary goal of this 1 day field course is to introduce state-level participants to the EMAC program and assist them in gaining enough familiarity with the EMAC process that, if an event occurs that requires their participation through EMAC, they know what is expected of them; in general, how to proceed; and what documentation and sources of information to look to for guidance.

Since the EMAC process is still being perfected and, therefore, the process will continue to be fine-tuned over time, one of the goals of the field course is to ensure that participants can locate the latest information on the EMAC processes at the time at which they need them.

Selection Criteria:

State agency level Emergency Response Team and Multi Agency Coordination Center staff responsible for processing requests for assistance and deploying State resources to meet the requests.

Instructor:

Graham Campbell, Training Officer for the State of Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency and Regional EMAC trainer will serve as primary instructor.

Course Location:

The course will be held in the Florian Hall Conference Room located in the Public Safety headquarters at Central Maine Commerce Center (CMCC). CMCC is located on Commerce Drive off Route 27 in North Augusta. Class will run from 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Lunch and breaks will be provided.
