Disaster Zone Podcast: ‘An Interview with FEMA Region X Administrator’

A career FEMA employee has been appointed.

There are 10 Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Regions. Willie Nunn, a career FEMA employee, has been appointed to be the FEMA Region 10 administrator.

Listen to this Disaster Zone podcast: “An Interview with FEMA Region X Administrator.”

The military is not a dominant source of employees for FEMA, but Willie points out how his Air Force career and his humble beginnings in Alabama shaped his approach to life and leadership.

Here’s the episode description:

“The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Region 10 has a new Regional Administrator, Willie Nunn. Nunn had previously been a Federal Coordination Officer (FCO) for a number of years. In this podcast we explore how his past experiences, personal and professional have shaped his approach to his new position. We also delve into what makes FEMA Region 10 unique in its own way, from the people, hazards and approaches to emergency management. Logistics for instance, will be a huge challenge following a subduction earthquake that impacts all the states in his territory.”
