The pilot continued to a safe altitude and trouble shot the problem. They declared an emergency and diverted to West Palm Beach International Airport. Once on the ground, they used emergency braking. The aircraft struck the EMAS system at the end of runway 14 where it came to rest inside of the EMAS.
