Presentation Program for Next General Meeting December 9
Our next meeting will include a presentation by our own Scott Greeson from the EOC who will give us a post-mortum on the October 20 tornado. I personally will be interested in what Scott has to say because I was in the path and sustained some damage.
Scott Greeson is a 5th generation native Texan married to his wife Laney for the past 27 years. He has a son (Josh) and a daughter (Kaytin) who he loves to spend time with when not working. For the past 6 years he has served as the Response and Recovery Coordinator for the City of Richardson’s Office of Emergency Management. Prior to Richardson, he was the Planning Section Chief for Dallas County Homeland Security and Emergency Management. His passion is emergency management serving in numerous roles for past incidents to include tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and other emergency incidents over the past several years. He has accreditation as an emergency manager with the State of Texas and the International Association of Emergency Management which is recognized globally.
