Emer­gency man­agers will meet for sum­mit

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - NEWS -

Four of the na­tion’s past emer­gency man­age­ment direc­tors will share their ex­pe­ri­ences of dis­as­ters dur­ing the 2017 Emer­gency Man­age­ment Sum­mit sched­uled Sept. 18-20 at Rose State Col­lege.

The sum­mit is hosted by Rose State and the state De­part­ment of Emer­gency Man­age­ment.

James Lee Witt, Joe All­baugh, Michael Brown and R. David Pauli­son — direc­tors of the Fed­eral Emer­gency Man­age­ment Agency from 1993 to 2009 — will talk with state and lo­cal emer­gency man­age­ment direc­tors about ex­pe­ri­ences from Hur­ri­cane Ka­t­rina, the Ok­la­homa

City Bomb­ing, 9/11 at­tacks and the 1994 Northridge earth­quake.

The theme is “Ob­ser­va­tions from Ground Zero.” Ses­sions will pro­vide in­sight into what went on be­hind the scenes of ma­jor emer­gency man­age­ment re­sponses and how those events shaped the pro­fes­sion of emer­gency man­age­ment.

The sum­mit is in­tended for emer­gency man­age­ment pro­fes­sion­als, first re­spon­ders from all fields, busi­ness pro­fes­sion­als, hu­man re­sources and stu­dents. Reg­is­tra­tion is at emer­gen­cy­man­age­ment sum­mit.org. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Emily Fisher at 405-736-0201 or efisher@rose.edu.
