National Emergency Training Center (EMI)

The Emergency Management Institute (EMI) is one of the primary training activities of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Within FEMA, EMI is part of the National Preparedness Directorate's National Training and Education Division. EMI is collocated with the National Fire Academy and both deliver training at the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) in Emmitsburg, Maryland. EMI also delivers resident training at the Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) in Anniston, Alabama, making an increased number of offerings possible. EMI provides national leadership in developing and delivering training to ensure that individuals and groups having key emergency management responsibilities at all levels of government, including FEMA employees, possess the requisite competencies to perform their jobs effectively. In addition to its resident training program in Emmitsburg, EMI disseminates centrally developed training materials through a comprehensive national training program in the United States territories, and trusts. EMI has responsibility for training FEMA staff to perform their disaster response functions. The audience for this work includes not only FEMA permanent staff, but also disaster reservists. Training activities include courses, workshops, conferences, videoconferences, exercises, computer activities, and independent study courses, which are conducted throughout the United States and the territories and trusts. Courses may be taught by EMI staff at NETC, CDP, or joint field offices.
