The webmaster is Claire B. Rubin; her company website is Claire B. Rubin & Associates, LLC. She has 35 years of experience in the fields of emergency management and homeland security. Ms Rubin is responsible for the content and the mechanics of the blog.
She blog as as “the Diva” in order to call attention to the long-term recovery process after disasters. The blog is intended to provide informal educational resources that may be useful for both researchers and practitioners. The postings provide information about current disaster events and also disaster recovery news (such as newly released reports from government agencies), with comments, opinions, and an occasional burst of outrage.
As a person with a strong interest in the history of emergency management in the U.S., I share the sentiment from this Ken Burns quote:
The great arrogance of the present is to forget the intelligence of the past.
