Learning the Ropes: Following Our New EMD!

Greetings, all!

Sam here!

As many of you already know, our former EMD, Ron Gentry, retired! We wish him well!

This provided an opportunity for a brand new emergency management director to learn our trade in Camden County! The Camden County EMA would like to announce Rod Sederwall as our new EMD!

Rod is brand new to the Emergency Management field and we look forward to his journey via our blog!

One of the first things I recalled was when I began my emergency management journey, I discovered a huge array of acronyms were involved in the field! With that in mind, I set out to begin an acronym guide for our new EMD. You will see the first page of an ongoing project below!

We are super excited to continue bringing the transparency of our office (and projects we undertake) to you, the residents and visitors of Camden County, so stay tuned for future installments in this blog!
