Emergency Management Challenges Discussed

The chapter hosted Charley English, director of the Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA), at its September luncheon on Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Atlanta. English provided valuable insight into the challenges of managing GEMA on a daily basis and working through the significant communications challenges presenting themselves. His role is to ensure that GEMA is a good steward of the taxpayers money, finds the best technical solutions to communications challenges, and helps guide the decision making criteria to decide what is the optimum solution amongst an overwhelming wealth of communication and information technologies available today. He said one of GEMA's most pressing problems is the development of broadband assets across the state and taking advantage of the bandwidth available today. The chapter appreciates the visit from GEMA and recognizes the time they took out of their incredibly busy schedule to meet with the chapter representatives.
