Interesting article in Emergency Management magazine about emergency managers who wear multiple hats. It unfortunately focuses completely on law enforcement officers assigned to be emergency managers (firefighters, land planners, etc. are also part-time emergency managers in some areas) and those working as municipal EMs (versus county EMs), but makes for good discussion of the challenges of trying to do multiple jobs. I would be interested to see what thoughts folks had on this topic. I know from working in Iowa that this was a common practice at the county level and many of those folks struggled to do anything proactively; many of those positions, in fact, turned over frequently. I don't think any of us feel it shouldn't be full-time in every county, but the reality is that some places don't see it as a full-time priority for budgeting.
