This week, we caught up with our Emergency Preparedness Coordinator, Rob Daughdril, as we continued our “What’s Up With…?” article series.
- 1. Describe your day-to-day role.
As a part time employee, my days and duties vary from completing paperwork after a deployment to developing planning documents and policies and procedures as it relates to Emergency Preparedness.
- 2. What is the biggest project that you’re working on?
My biggest project is developing and coordinating all the information we need to gather and organizing documents during a deployment. It can be extensive.
- 3. How does your role connect and collaborate with other staff members, board and providers?
The best thing about LRAA/LAA is its team members. We work well together, know our jobs and pull together whenever a need arises.
- 4. What are you most looking forward to in the coming months?
During off hurricane season, we have time to catch up and get things done and things are not in a rush.
- 5. Is there anything additional that you’d like to share?
I’ve been with LRAA since its inception and I have always been very impressed with the goals and actions. The Alliance has done many things that other organizations only dream about.
