Podcast #74: Legislative and External Affairs and Their Own Challenges During Emergencies


This is the return of All Hazards after a Covid19 Hiatus. We hope you’re all safe and well.

We sat down with members of the Cal OES Office of Legislative and External Affairs in January 2020 with the intention of posting it asap. Then the coronavirus hit. It seemed there were more pressing issues on everyone’s minds, so we didn’t want to post this episode at that time. But it’s here now.

Lori Nezhura, Patricia Utterback and Paul McGinnis bring us into the world of elected officials and how they affect each other during disaster response.
