A Citizen’s Eye View of Public Preparedness

New Addition To The Blog Roll

May 12th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I am happy to add Eric Holderman’s Disaster Zone blog at to my Blog Roll. Eric is the former Emergency Preparedness Director of King County in Washington state. He was one of the nation’s most innovative and charismatic emergency management officials when it comes to citizen preparedness. Holderman is now with the consulting firm ICF International.  

He describes Disaster-Zone as:

dedicated to sharing information about the world of emergency management and homeland security. There is a constant stream of new laws, plans, procedures, and technology solutions. Science is also being applied to studying human behavior and how we interact with one another and with all aspects of our environment. Taking advantage of science and applying it to how we perform our everyday functions is something we need to strive for.

As he did as a government official, Eric takes these somewhat complicated and always changing topics and makes them understandable and engaging for both the trade and, most importantly for this blog, the general public.

    I just separated my emergency preparedness stuff out of my political blog….although I think politics will end up getting us into an emergency preparedness situation!!

    I pretty much have my pages done and will be transferring my blog posts in a day or two. I would love to trade links with you.

    My blog is kind of geared towards busy moms just wanting to take care of their families.

    Let me know.
