The SEMS Statute requires all state agencies to implement and use SEMS in responding to Multi-agency or multiple jurisdiction emergencies. Local agencies are encouraged to implement SEMS, but are not required to do so under law. Use of SEMS by local government agencies is required to obtain state reimbursement for response related personnel costs.
The following material has been developed by an inter-agency working group to assist state and local agencies in implementing and maintaining SEMS.
