Doesn’t everyone spend a bit of time worrying about washing the DNA off your hands?
Doesn’t everyone start their morning read with “After a mass fatality incident…”
Look, let’s be real honest – this isn’t exciting, but completely necessary esp to deal with the challenges of disaster response and recovery.
I can confirm:
- Emergency Management is not your typical 9-5 job.
- The nature of our job is to make sense out of non-sense.
- We must organize chaos into a coordinated response.
- We are tasked to building relationships where none exist.
But good Emergency Managers? You’ll see them thrive in this environment and often excel in adversity.
You’ll know when you see one.
