Disaster management is the macro version of emergency preparedness! Listen to Ana tell us about how we can better manage ourselves during a disaster, what the “second disaster” is, and the biggest myths surrounding emergency management, one blew my mind.

More on Ana:
Ana has worked in Disaster and Emergency Management for well over a decade. This include working with Canadian Red Cross as a Disaster Response Coordinator during the Slave Lake wildfire in 2011 and the Southern Alberta Floods in 2013. She has also worked with the province with the Alberta Emergency Management Agency (AEMA) designing emergency management exercises and with Alberta Environment and Parks in the environmental emergency response team. Through these experiences she has had the privilege to help Albertans in need during major disasters impacting the province including the wildfire impacting Fort McMurray in 2016, many other wildfires throughout the province, and major floods throughout. I have also worked in the private sector doing consulting for major organizations for the crisis management programs. She currently teaches at NAIT in the Diploma program for Disaster and Emergency Management and also loves working with organizations to ensure they are resilient in the face of adversity. Academically, she has a Master of Arts in Disaster and Emergency Management. In her free time I enjoy running stupidly long distances in rugged trails throughout the province. She is currently training for her second ultra marathon
