EMAT logo_no background.png

EMAT exists to help those in the field of emergency management stay connected, informed, and educated.

This Recognition Program is meant to highlight the actions of those within the field who exemplify positive performance and who are helping to move along the field of emergency management in a positive way.

The intent of the Awards and Nominations Committee is to create a monthly recognition opportunity for members who have shown action above and beyond within their community. This allows EMAT to be the platform which allows people an opportunity to grow within the field by recognition.

Nominees will be recognized quarterly through several methods of communication including an email to the EMAT membership describing the nominee’s accomplishments and also website recognition.  All of this can be saved and included into an EMAT member’s LinkedIn and other professional outlets.


  1. Support work in the field of emergency management by giving members an opportunity for recognition which can further support career development or other certifications (i.e. TN-CEM)

  2. Establish EMAT as an agency of support and recognition

  3. Create an outlet for local recognition by recognizing actions at a state level

  4. Support the EMAT Award and Recognition Committee by developing more depth throughout the entire year
