The Weekly Round-Up 02/19/2022
What you missed
It has been a great week. Getting outside and taking the time to read is critical for your self-development. So The Emergency Management Network is dedicated to bringing thought leaders and experts to one place. Over the last few weeks, we have brought on some great emergency management thought leaders that we know you will enjoy. Kelly McKinney, Sarah K. Miller, Dr. Rodric Bowman, Tobias Watson, and Amber Rushton are leading the way.
As we expand our network we decided to create this weekly round-up of the post on The Emergency Management Network’s Substack for your convenience.
Highlights Of The Week

Sarah K. Miller dives deep into why we need to be thinking about infrastructure. There are many reasons why we need to have critical infrastructure on our minds as emergency managers.
