Subject: Sept. 12: The Rising Cost of Natural Hazards & Growing Disaster Risk


Dr. Graham,


We thought you and others at the Water Institute might be interested in an upcoming program that the Bob Graham Center will be hosting with Former FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate on Sept. 12 at 6 p.m. in the Pugh Hall Ocora. More program information can be found below.


The Rising Cost of Natural Hazards & Growing Disaster Risk

On Sept. 12 at 6 p.m.in the Pugh Hall Ocora, WUFT-FM, the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network (FPREN) and the Bob Graham Center for Public Service will host Former FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate. Fugate will discuss his experiences serving as President Barack Obama’s FEMA Administrator, the future of disaster response, increasing disaster risk and the rising costs associated with natural disasters.

Fugate led FEMA through multiple record-breaking disaster years and oversaw the Federal Government’s response to major events such as Hurricane Sandy, Hurricane Matthew and the 2016 Louisiana flooding.  Fugate is from Alachua County, attended Sante Fe High School and worked as a lieutenant with Alachua County Fire Rescue. He then worked as an emergency manager for the county for 10 years before moving up to the state and national levels.
