*What keeps the FEMA Administrator awake at night – and how you can help.*

Join Craig Fugate, the Administrator for the Federal Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA), for a discussion of the intersection of NCAR science and
priorities for FEMA over the next several years.  Administrator Fugate will
discuss issues he and those in his agency deal with both regularly and less
frequently. Science is critical for helping anticipate and solve many of
these problems. FEMA has to manage emergencies ranging from extreme weather
events, environmental emergencies occurring on seasonal or shorter time
scales, and plan for long-term effects of changing climate.

Administrator Fugate, a dynamic, engaging speaker, is interested in hearing
your perspective on how science can assist FEMA in achieving its mission to
plan, prepare, and mitigate before, during, and after disasters. He will
also share his perspective on ways in which science is making FEMA’s job
easier. Administrator Fugate’s talk will occur from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. on
Friday, November 14th in the Mesa Lab Main Seminar Room.
