Meta-leadership: Re-defining Emergency Management

At the professional level, the critical tasks leading to, during and following a disaster involve coordinating multiorganizational, intergovernmental and intersectoral response and recovery operations. In the early 70’s wildfires in California brought the implementation of incident command systems. Since then, the landscape has changed considerably at all levels of government. It has, likewise, required changes from emergency management professionals.

For over four decades I have had the privilege of working as an emergency manager in this great country. In every one of my jobs, leadership has been the common denominator for success. Leadership is what leaves a jurisdiction more resilient over time.
