I want to thank you for taking the time to visit my website. The purpose of this site is to provide some insight into who I am and to share my passion. I am a former small town mayor, who found I could make a difference in emergency management. I hope through this website I am hoping to encourage others to do the same.
Richard Hildreth MA /AEM/MEP
I hold a Master’s Degree in Emergency and Disaster Management from American Military University where I graduated with a 4.0. I am also a graduate of the Executive Leaders Program at the Center for Homeland Defense and Security as well as the FEMA Basic Academy, my training however goes much farther than just these programs. Since 2007, I have taken advantage of FEMA funded training when available, adding to my knowledge, skills and abilities. A complete list of this training is available in my resume page locate on this site.
I am an emergency management professional who believes in the premise that by building individual and community capacity prior to disaster, community resilience is increased and over all loss is reduced. I am an avid volunteer who is active in my church, active in the community and willing to invest my time in making both stronger.
Please take the time to look through this site, read my blog and see if what I have to say make sense. In closing, I want to thank you again for visiting my site and invite you to send me an e-mail with your thoughts.
