International Emergency Management Assistance Compact

iemac logo

Maine adopted IEMAC through legislative action in 1999.

IEMAC is a mutual aid agreement between northeastern states and the eastern Canadian provinces. Signatories to IEMAC have established protocols to share personnel and equipment in a major emergency. IEMAC is known in Canada as the International Emergency Management Assistance Memorandum of Understanding (IEMAMOU).

The International Emergency Management Group (IEMG) meets twice a year to review protocols and improve coordination. IEMAC has been used to send Maine DOT crews to Nova Scotia to help clear roads after a blizzard, and to bring search and rescue crews to Aroostook County from New Brunswick.
