At our 2015 Educators and Practitioners Summit, which celebrated the Center’s 10th year since its formation, Jim Mullen was one of our keynote speakers. I was amazed by Jim’s ability to tell a story. After the Forum, I knew I needed to get Jim to be our blogger. With his over thirty-years of experience in emergency management, I recognized that other people needed to have the chance to read about his stories and knowledge he could share with others. I am thankful that Jim accepted my offer. Now with five-years under his belt as our blogger, I look forward to another five more years and so on.

“September 2020 marks the 5th anniversary of Emergency Management Once Removed, sponsored by the Center of Excellence for Homeland Security and Emergency Management, I am grateful to the Center’s excellent team (Linda, Kellie, Jasmine, and Bryan) for their support and encouragement. To regular and occasional readers, thank you.”
