The Mutual Aid in the United States project tracks policy developments related to interstate and intrastate mutual aid systems.  Sharing resources smoothly and efficiently during a crisis is vital to our nation’s resilience. The Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) serves as the primary mechanisms for sharing resources between states.  Intrastate mutual aid systems provide for effective local response, and facilitate response efforts coordinated through the EMAC system.
