This year’s hurricane season was very peaceful – following two years of dramatic storms that impacted much of the peninsula and traumatized many Floridians. But director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management Craig Fugate says emergency managers must plan for more than just dealing with hurricanes.
In fact people sometimes ask what do you do when you’re not dealing with hurricanes and we remind people that as great as the state of florida is we still face hazards every day from technology, man made to weather and we don’t know when the next disaster is going to strike and often disasters don’t give us warnings like hurricanes do…
Fugate says the conference with emergency operations directors from Florida’s 67 counties gives them the opportunity to face to face and learn to work as a team – no matter what kind of emergency may threaten. Valerie Alker W-G-C-U news.
