Why Are Governments Turning to Emergency Management to Run Things? March 2021

 "It is my belief that the best results in business come from a creative process, from the ability to see things differently from everyone else, and from finding answers to problems that are not bound by the phrase 'we have always done it this way.' "  Wayne Rogers

Before 9/11/2001 within the military, emergency management were just a resource for a checkbox during inspections.  After 9/11 the environment changed within the entire U.S.
 
In 2020, and 2021 WE are needed even more especially in vulnerable communities in the U.S. and globally. 
 
Not first responders, not law enforcement, but emergency managers.  Emergency Managers with the practical, academic, and hands-on knowledge, skills, and abilities globally.  Multi-skilled, and multi-talented.

I picked this up from a LinkedIn posting. Yes, I might have seen it before, too. However, the recent assignment of FEMA to help out on issues at the Southwest border — discussed in another blog post — highlights how if you need a coordinating entity, emergency management in general is good at it.

 

We have done PPE and now in some cases we're doing vaccination sites and whatever else is required.

 

Some emergency management agencies are working on homeless housing issues for their jurisdiction.

 

I'm reminded that in the U.S. Army, it was the infantryman who was and is the "jack of all trades" who comes in and gets things done. A good reputation to have for any profession

 

Let's highlight the second item below. This ability to work with limited information, like in a disaster where you are dealing with lots of ambiguities, is what makes our profession different.

 

Basically, we have to make decisions when others are frozen in fear of making a mistake
