Last week I was interviewed by the Emergency Management Magazine, a publication widely read by emergency responders nationwide. Based on my research projects on the subject over the past five years I summarized preparedness-related recommendations for the Pacific Northwest.

I had the great pleasure to appear as featured interview guest on the 30-minute Disaster Zone TV show in downtown Seattle. The show is hosted by Eric Holdeman, one of the nation’s most highly reputed experts on disaster response management. Holdeman is a former emergency manager himself who held managerial positions at Federal, State, and County levels. The show is produced by King County TV and watched by professional emergency responders around the nation. The recorded edition of the show will be on the air shortly and can already be watched on YouTube. (Video, 24:55)
