As the Emergency Management Director for the Town of Rockport, I strive to ensure compliance with State and Federal mandates and standards. Most importantly I plan for and coordinate significant events and critical incident response. We oversee and plan our Town's Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan seek resources and collaborate with other communities to maximize our effectiveness as a department. An emergency manager is, first and foremost, a program manager. The emergency manager must interface and formulate plans with various departments, such as emergency services, public health, human resources, information technology, finance, and legal, while continuously refining strategic plans with executive management to meet the needs of the organization and community.
