The NCAA Final Four Basketball Tournament brought fans from across the country to Arizona for sports and entertainment festivities. While college basketball teams played to advance to the championship, emergency management and response teams from local, county, state, and federal levels collaborated to keep travelers, visitors and community members safe.
Emergencies can have affects that require the response of multiple agencies. During responses, the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs (DEMA) works collectively with other agencies, including federal, tribal, state and local governments, to provide emergency management capabilities.
The Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs (DEMA) Communications Unit provides radio and technical communications support to Arizona’s counties and local communities.
