Dear EMAT Members,
As we continue to respond to COVID-19 and keep an eye on the horizon, thank you for your continued service and sacrifice during this historic global response. Your commitment to fighting the pandemic while confronting historic ice storms and severe weather this year demonstrates the tireless work of emergency managers across the state. I’m proud of your work and membership in EMAT. I hope we are a resource for your work and helping you better serve your communities.
