FEMA Launches New Blog

by The National Office of Citizen Corps FEMA Individual & Community Preparedness Division




Welcome to the first-ever FEMA blog

Posted by: Administrator Craig Fugate

At FEMA we have a Facebook page, Twitter page, I tweet and earlier this year we launched our first-ever mobile website, but what we didn't have was a blog. Well, now that we have one, you're probably wondering what you can expect. Plain and simple, this will be another tool we'll use to communicate and let you know what we're up to. This won't be another way to put out our press releases - this is a way to communicate directly with you.

You'll eventually hear from team members from across our agency, from our regional offices to our field offices, supporting local disaster recovery efforts. We will provide information before, during and after disaster strikes and we will highlight best practices, innovative ideas, and insights that are being used across emergency management and across the country.

So as we get our blog up and running, we'll also be looking to you for ideas, tips and feedback. If you have a question you'd like us to address, send it our way. If you have a creative idea you'd like us to highlight, let us know. We're looking to you – the rest of our team – to be our partners in this endeavor. - Craig
