Jenny Novak on Keystone Emergency Management Association Podcast

Last week I had the pleasure of speaking with Paul Falavolito on a podcast that he hosts on behalf of the Keystone Emergency Management Association, a professional group for EM’s in Pennsylvania. We discuss California’s ongoing response and recovery efforts, recent earthquakes and their impacts, what still needs to be done to improve preparedness and a little bit about how I got into the field and what a ‘day in the life’ is like at CalOES. Enjoy!
