Director Graduates from FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute
– Pennsylvania Emergency Management Director Glenn Cannon recently completed an
executive leadership program in emergency management, sponsored by the Federal
Emergency Management Agency.
“No matter how long those of us in
emergency management have been doing our jobs, it’s important to continue to
educate yourself on new challenges and solutions. You can never stop learning
in this profession, and I was honored to be a part of this group,” Cannon said.
Cannon, who was among the first class to
graduate from the program, completed 136 hours of training in emergency
management, policies and decision making.
According to FEMA, the National
Emergency Management Executive Academy is designed for current and future
emergency management leaders in all levels of government agencies as well as
non-profit voluntary organizations and the private sector.
“This is the first class in the nation
to graduate the National Emergency Management Executive Academy,” said Mary
Hughes, Federal Emergency Management Agency. “It’s important for our
senior leaders in states to take part in this training, not only because they
learn so much, but because they have an opportunity to collaborate and share
with other senior leaders.”
FEMA developed the Executive Academy to
instill a deeper understanding of contemporary and emerging emergency
management issues and insights, theories, tools and resources that enable
decision-makers to think and act more strategically.
