Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, Area Leaders Discuss Post-9/11 Emergency Preparedness Progress, Future Challenges in D.C. Region

Frederick, MD -- As the home of our nation’s capital and one of the two targeted regions on September 11, 2001, emergency preparedness has been a top priority for area elected officials, emergency managers, and first responders. Over the past 12 years, governments, non-profits, and private partners have worked together closely, with the support of the Washington Council of Governments (COG), to increase the region’s ability to detect, prepare, train for, and respond to terrorist and natural threats.
On Wednesday, September 11, 2013, COG brought together a panel of officials to discuss regional emergency preparedness during its September Board Meeting. The panel included: Eleanor Holmes Norton, U.S. Representative (District of Columbia); Paul Quander, District of Columbia Deputy Mayor for Public Safety and Justice and Chairman of COG’s Emergency Preparedness Council; Kenneth Mallette, Maryland Emergency Management Agency Director; Linda Mathes, American Red Cross of the National Capital Region Director; and James Schwartz, Arlington County Fire Chief.
COG Chairwoman and President Pro Tem of the Board of Aldermen in the City of Frederick, Karen Lewis Young stated that, "It is very appropriate that we commemorate those who were lost twelve years ago but it is equally important that we utilize the lessons learned to prevent and respond to future threats."
