IAEM Statement Regarding the use of "Emergency Manager"

Members of the U.S. Council of the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM), the premier international professional association representing more than 5,000 professional emergency managers worldwide, including more than 4,200 in the United States, believe there is serious confusion and misunderstanding of the use of the term "emergency manager" in the press and public related to the Flint, Michigan, water situation.  Traditional emergency managers focus on preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disasters or crisis situations.  The term "emergency manager" has been used to describe those in the business of saving lives, protecting property, and restoring communities for more than 40 years.


Cincinnati Metro

Having not exercised our security plan for many years, there was great hesitation from our organization as we started this process. I can tell you that the professional service that we received from Armada, in particular from Lee Foster was the success of our mission. 

Mr.Foster was able to custom tailor a scenario that challenged our organization without disrupting our day to day operations, and provided us with solid feedback to improve upon as we look ahead. 

We will certainly use Armada again in the future, and I would highly recommend any initiative that Lee Foster is involved in.
