Todd: I have Mike and snooty with me from San Bernardino County emergency management and we’re here to talk about…
It’s kind of like a band-aid. Right now and actually every single day up to now you’ve had running water flushing toilets, so we take all these things for granted
This week we talk to Alex Tardy of the National Weather Service about the weather. Weather is always an issue during an emergency and having a connection to the NWS is a great way to serve your community. Alex brings years of experience to the table when we talk weather.

We were very much involved, different initiatives both within the national wildland coordination group and with, FEMA on the progressiveness of where they’re going with their doctrines.
This week we are taking about Artificial Intelligence and how it can help Emergency Managers, plan for, and respond to disasters.
This week we talk to Anne Stauffer of the Pew Charitable Trusts. Anne surveyed state emergency managers and their staffs requesting information on 2012-16 spending for state-funded disaster assistance programs, expenditures related to federal programs, and federal reimbursements received. Pew then determined each state’s total disaster spending by adding the two spending categories and reducing that figure by the reported reimbursement amount. The researchers also held follow-up discussions with states to clarify and refine their responses.
