About EMI SIG
The Emergency Management Issues Special Interest Group (EMI SIG) was established in 1986 as the Emergency Preparedness Special Interest Group and became the Emergency Management Issues Special Interest Group in 1991.
The EMI SIG coordinates the exchange of expertise, ideas, and resources among DOE and contractor emergency management personnel; identifies common issues and priorities, and pursues activities that address shared needs. The EMI SIG is sponsored by the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Emergency Management and Policy (NA-41) and advised by the DOE Office of Transportation (EM-11). Members of the EMI SIG are emergency managers, coordinators, planners, and trainers from facilities across the DOE system. A Steering Committee, composed of DOE Sponsors and advisors and of EMI SIG members, selects activities for SIG members to work on each year. The EMI SIG membership meets formally every spring. The Annual Meeting includes presentations, panel discussions, and workshops on emergency management topics of interest to members. Subcommittees and working groups hold special meetings and conference calls as needed to develop products for the membership.
