Disaster Zone Podcast: Regional Emergency Management Coordinators

Providing for better state to local support and connections.

I have always been a big believer in state emergency management offices having regional coordinators out in the field connecting with and supporting local emergency managers and their cohorts.

This interview is with one such regional coordinator for the State of Idaho. Darin provides a great example of what they do and can add to the disaster resilience equation.

Disaster Zone Podcast: Regional Emergency Management Coordinators

Podcast Description:

Some, but not all states have established some form of state representation out in regions of their states. In this podcast to speak with Darin Letzring, with the Idaho Office of Emergency Management. He is their Southeast Area Field Officer. He has been performing these functions for over five years. Darin made the transition from being in the Marine Corps to first working as a health regional coordinator. We discuss his duties supporting seven rural counties and how he goes about doing that on a day-to-day basis. Darin just completed a masters degree in emergency management. Congratulations to him for that 18-month effort!
