Welcome to EMAT Online
The Home of Texas Emergency Management Professionals
Thanks to you, we have received a great response to our Leadership Compensation and Benefits Survey, with over 70 completed responses so far! Please keep pushing it out, and encourage your peers to participate. We will leave the survey open until August 1st in the hopes that we can reach as wide an audience as possible!
Up to this point, the majority of the responses received have been from individuals at the Director/Coordinator level. Please also encourage your "second in command" positions (those with titles such as "Assistant" or "Deputy") to take the survey as well!
Once again, thank you to those who have already taken the survey, and who have helped promote it throughout the state! Keep it up!
