    Summer Series BONUS Episode | Connectivity in EM - Interview with Jeanne O’Donnell

    53:49

    Thanks for joining me this week for this Bonus Episode in our Summer Series! We tie together many of the themes we’ve been talking about over the course of the last six episodes, particularly how diversity in backgrounds and expertise is important in EM and how all different fields come together to influence and add to the Emergency Management conversation. My guest this week is Jeanne O’Donnell, Program Manager at LA County Office of Emergency Management. Having worked in the field for over 25 years, 16 of those at the LA County OEM, Jeanne has such a wealth of experience and information to share. She has worked as an EOC Coordinator, a Section Chief, and in various other positions during activations and exercises. She has also led the development of a number of countywide disaster plans including mass fatality, volunteer management, animal response, and donations management. In this episode we talk holistically about how Emergency Management overlaps with other fields, how these various perspectives and knowledge bases can be helpful for creative problem solving, and how we can create an environment for all stakeholders involved to work together. Jeanne shares wonderful stories and examples from her career and has great advice to share with EMs at any point in their journey to learn more.

    49:54

    I’m so excited to welcome to the podcast this week my guest, Sarah Thompson. Sarah is the Senior Manager of Operations in Relief and Recovery at the Canadian Red Cross in Ontario, Canada. We focused a lot of our conversation around the topic of data and the importance of good data management. We also discussed how data can be used as the foundation for effective communication in Emergency Management, making sure that we and the teams we work with develop skills or work with experts in organizing and interpreting data so that we are able to pull valuable insights from the information that we have access to. Finally, Sarah also shares some insights from her experience in organizing deployments for the Red Cross as well as some advice and lessons that she has learned throughout her career. I really enjoyed speaking with her and I’m so happy to be able to share this interview with you!

    Summer Series #5 | The Private Sector and the Public Sector & Emergency Management - Interview with Jason Ferguson

    42:37

    This week on EM Student I am talking to Jason Ferguson, a servant-leader with over 17 years of experience across the Public Health, Emergency Management, Higher Education and Veteran Service sectors. In his career, he has fostered safe, healthy, and vibrant communities on university campuses; increased access to affordable medications and housing for under-resourced individuals living with HIV/AIDS; helped military veterans reintegrate into civilian life by training them for domestic and international disaster response missions; and assisted communities in the cycle of preparing for, responding to, recovering from, and mitigating against disasters of all types. In our conversation, we talk about his experience working in the private and public sectors, both at his current position as the Deputy Director of Emergency Management at SnapNurse, and in his previous roles. He gave me an overview of what it is like to work at these various types of organizations and had some great advice for people entering the EM field. I really enjoyed my conversation with Jason, and I am sure you will too.
