In the newly-released issue of the Hazards Observer, published by Univ. of CO, the Diva is the co-author of “What Keeps Me Up at Night?, pages 6-10. The article provides a summary of the excellent session on that topic, held last July at the Broomfield, CO conference, sponsored by the Hazards Center at the Univ. of CO/Boulder. And the cartoons are terrific!
The article lists 8 nightmare-producing issues identified and discussed at the conference. As readers of this blog will notice, one of the issues — the composition of the FEMA workforce — has been the topic of several blog postings. In fact, the topic has received a record no. of hits (over 2,200) and comments ( more than 40) here.
The authors of the article intend to do additional research on the nightmare themes noted in the article, so please use the comment feature at the bottom of this posting and add your thoughts and suggestions. If your prefer to send them offline, please send them to <cbrubinatcomcast dot net >.
