The international association of emergency managers Presentation Transcript

  • 1. The  Interna*onal  Associa*on  of   Emergency  Managers  
  • 2. A"er  earning  my  Doctorate  from  Columbia  University  in  1978,  I  began  a  35-­‐year  career  in  public  service  that  has  included  roles  at  organizaEons  such  as  the  Fire  Department  of  the  City  of  New  York  (FDNY)  and  the  911  FUND.  As  President  of  the  911  FUND  today,  I  draw  inspiraEon  from  the  bravery  and  sacrifice  of  the  firefighters  and  other  emergency  personnel  who  served  during  and  a"er  the  September  11  terrorist  aQacks.  In  addiEon  to  my  work  with  the  911  FUND,  I  also  contribute  to  the  emergency  management  profession  through  my  membership  in  the  InternaEonal  AssociaEon  of  Emergency  Managers  (IAEM).  As  an  internaEonal  non-­‐profit  organizaEon,  IAEM  provides  valuable  resources  to  me  in  my  efforts  to  assist  first  responders  in  countries  all  over  the  world,  including  ArgenEna,  Colombia,  Ecuador,  El  Salvador,  HaiE,  Panama,  Paraguay,  and  elsewhere.    
  • 3. As  the  former  ExecuEve  Director  and  Chief  Learning  Officer  of  FDNY,  where  I  was  responsible  for  all  training  and  educaEon  for  the  Departments  17,000  personnel,  I  strongly  support  IAEMs  mission  to  educate  the  public  in  the  Principles  of  Emergency  Management.  Developed  in  associaEon  with  the  Federal  Emergency  Management  Agency  (FEMA),  these  principles  consist  of  eight  consensus  definiEons  agreed  upon  by  expert  pracEEoners  and  academics  in  the  field.  Adopted  by  some  of  the  foremost  emergency  management  agencies  in  the  world,  including  FEMA,  Safety  Centre  Europe,  Singapore  Civil  Defense  Force,  and  the  Emergency  Management  Academy  of  New  Zealand,  the  eight  principles  are  intended  to  guide  emergency  management  in  the  event  of  natural  disasters,  acts  of  terrorism,  or  other  disasters.  AddiEonally,  IAEM  aims  to  promote  the  development  of  the  emergency  management  profession  through  the  IAEM  Scholarship  Program  and  the  CerEfied  Emergency  Manager  Scholarship  Program.
