Although they provide much needed resources and capabilities during the time of a crisis or disaster, a State emergency management agency’s (EMA) operational focus extends far beyond the response phase of an incident. The reality is that the success of a State EMA’s response operation is intimately related to its ability to systematically track, guide, direct, monitor, manage, and administer all aspects of a comprehensive emergency management program across all state agency, county and municipal government partners, regional authorities, and other stakeholders.
Although the value is unmeasurable, many states think that coordinating a statewide comprehensive emergency management program would be a formidable task that would require significant resources. That’s not true anymore.
