  • Hello from SC

    I am currently working on my Phd in Public Service Leadership specializing in Emergency Management with a concentration in Homeland Securoty. I have written numerous papers on disaster response, leadership (issues ie Hurricane Katrina), conducted case study reviews etc. I am currently writing my dissertation on cultural competency in emergency responders. I have also served several years on the PIPS (Public Information Phone Service) team for disaster response through our SC Emergency Management Division. We act as the liaison between the public and emergency officials. We answer questions and provide direction on everything from where shelters are and how to get them to providing directions on how to get around. I recently served a week on this team for the October floods that devastated SC.
