What is EMAC?

EMAC, the Emergency Management Assistance Compact is an all hazards – all disciplines mutual aid compact that serves as the cornerstone of the nation’s mutual aid system. EMAC offers assistance during governor-declared states of emergency or disaster through a responsive, straightforward system that allows states to send personnel, equipment, and commodities to assist with response and recovery efforts in other states.¬†EMAC is implemented within the State Emergency Management Agency on behalf of the Governor of the State. This provides a consistent and coordinated response across the nation.

The Texas EMAC Reimbursement Guide provides instructional guidelines on how individuals and jurisdictions will be reimbursed for an EMAC deployment.
