PrepTalks: Public works and emergency management - restoring lifeline services

Philip Mann's PrepTalk, "Public Works & Emergency Management: Restoring Lifeline Services" helps emergency managers and public works personnel understand the role of public works in response and recovery from disasters. The most important goal for response and recovery is “to get our citizens back to their normal life," Mann said, "and to do that the most efficent way is if police, fire, and public works work together.”

Mann is the Public Works Director for Gainesville, Florida. He chaired the American Public Works Association’s (APWA) Emergency Management Committee and is APWA’s representative to the Public Safety Advisory Committee, which is working on the FirstNet project, developing the first high-speed, nationwide wireless broadband network dedicated to public safety.
