In this episode we had the opportunity to sit down with FEMA Region 6 Administrator, Tony Robinson. We talk about what it means to take an All-Hazard approach to emergency management, hurricane preparedness, public assistance, lifelines, and mitigation. Tony shares what he knows are pain points for local EMs and how FEMA is working to fix some of those. We speak about the importance of not only having private insurance but ensuring that insurance coverage is adequate. The episode is also packed with advice for local EMs.
