Last week, Alan Spears, the Deputy Emergency Management Coordinator was part of a panel discussion about emergency management. This discussion was presented in front of Boy Scout Adult Leaders (Tomahawk District). There were about 40 individuals present to hear Alan; David Popoff, Regional Liaison Officer for the Governor’s Division of Emergency Management; and Pat Hughes, Sugar Land Emergency Management Coordinator discuss emergency management. At the meeting, Alan explained what activities take place at the Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management, and the type of volunteer opportunities available, especially for young adults (e.g. Boy Scouts). This event was held on March 12, 2009 at the First United Methodist Church of Missouri City. Staff from the FBC Office of Emergency Management are available to make presentations on emergency management. If interested, please contact 281-342-6185.
