Former Deputy Administrator at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Selected to Forge New Partnership Opportunities with Local, National, and International Disaster Management Authorities 

Kihei, HI, April 13, 2017 — Pacific Disaster Center (PDC), one of the world’s leading innovators in disaster management technologies and practices, announces former Deputy Administrator for Protection and National Preparedness at FEMA as its newest Senior Advisor. Tim Manning has joined PDC to broaden awareness and scope of the center’s products and services. In his role as Senior Advisor, Mr. Manning will further the center’s mission of assisting local, national, and international agencies in building capacity in disaster preparedness and risk reduction.

“We are very excited to welcome Tim to Pacific Disaster Center,” said PDC Executive Director Ray Shirkhodai. “Given the breadth and depth of his knowledge and experience, Tim will help us enhance our engagement strategies with national and local stakeholders. His impressive background working with FEMA senior leadership and partners at all levels of government—implementing numerous Presidential directives in national preparedness programs—will unquestionably help the center develop new relationships and advance the implementation of disaster management technology throughout the world.”

Tim Manning said he intends to bring new ways of supporting partnerships and increasing awareness about the mission and expertise of PDC not only within the U.S. emergency management system, but around the globe. Tim Manning described his vision for his new role at PDC by saying, “As extreme weather hazards and human-induced disasters increase in frequency, the importance of reliable disaster technology and collaborative partnerships cannot be over-emphasized in tackling these global crises.”

Over the past decade, Pacific Disaster Center has taken the lead with early warning and disaster preparedness solutions for state, local, federal, and international agencies. The center has long partnered with U.S. government agencies (such as the U.S. Department of Defense, FEMA, Department of Homeland Security, Health and Human Services, NASA, NOAA, etc.), United Nations agencies (including UNOCHA, WFP), IAEA, regional organizations (such as ASEAN in South East Asia, CDEMA in the Caribbean), and numerous partner nations to undertake projects that help mitigate disasters and reduce their risks and vulnerabilities.
