Meet Katrina! Katrina works to build a culture of preparedness throughout the FEMA Region 8 states of Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming. One group she is especially passionate about connecting with is our youth.
As the Community Preparedness Officer for FEMA Region 8, she wears many hats.
“We really want to focus on youth and getting them involved in the preparedness efforts and so we utilize youth and essentially use them as advisors to help us see that youth perspective and really look at what are we missing. And so we really want to educate them and provide them with training so they can be the mouthpieces out there for us in their communities.”
