The Role of Elected and Senior Policy Officials in Emergency Management and Disasters

A short video that summarizes their role before, during and after a disaster.

Every emergency manager has to at some point try to explain the role of senior elected and appointed officials to the people holding those positions.

Check out this excellent short video that does that concisely: “EOC 101: Elected Leaders and Senior Officials.”

There is also a series of short videos that have been produced by the King County Office of Emergency Management in Washington state.
Eric Holdeman is a contributing writer for Emergency Management magazine and is the former director of the King County, Wash., Office of Emergency Management.
