NCSWIC Releases Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) Package

Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) is a nationally adopted mutual aid agreement that establishes a national system to facilitate the sharing of state and local government publicly-owned resources across state lines during times of emergency or disaster as long as there is a State of Emergency declared by the governor of  the affected EMAC Member State.

The National Council of Statewide Interoperability Coordinators (NCSWIC) Planning, Training, and Exercise (PTE) Committee, in coordination with Region IV, developed an EMAC Package to share best practices and templates to support the public safety community when submitting an EMAC request. The EMAC package includes the EMAC Best Practices and six communications-specific EMAC Mission Readiness Package (MRP) models.

  • The EMAC Best Practices Guide improves understanding of the EMAC processes for developing MRPs for communications equipment and personnel.
  • The EMAC MRP Models are EMAC request templates for satellite voice, satellite data, mobile communications site, radio cache, telecommunications support, and COMU support team. These models serve as a guide for states when responding to an EMAC request.

The EMAC Package is available for download at For additional information on the EMAC process, please reference the or contact
