They collaborate, they coordinate, and they multi-task: Emergency managers are the people on the spot in times of public crisis. It's their job to support the first responders and handle all the complex logistics involved in keeping people safe when danger strikes. Roderick Fraser, president of Professional Leadership and Management LLC and former Boston Fire Commissioner, explains in our latest Skye Learning video.
Emergency managers are in high demand. Climate change has increased the rate of forest fires, hurricanes, flooding, tornadoes, and other natural disasters. Domestic and international terrorism are growing threats. The public, private, and nonprofit sectors are facing escalating pressures from the public and the government to prevent emergencies. These agencies are increasingly developing and investing in emergency management programs to mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters.
