It must have been so interesting to have a one on one interview with an Emergency Manager at the island of Okinawa, Japan.

Reading through your analysis, it was indeed a great experience to me. Being exposed to Mrs. Huller’s broad experience and formal education gave me a great insight into the career trajectory of a practiced Emergency Manager. Having worked as a Military officer in the U.S Air force and for several emergency programs, it interested me to know how she had been able to successfully manage the hazards that come along with her practice. I had to laugh when I looked at the list of her certificates and this was amazing because, she actually had developed a passion in her career.

Mrs. Hulller talked about enjoying working as an emergency manager overseas than state side. This is outstanding because, it is clear that working overseas exposes someone to great risks but for her, it broadened his knowledge on requirements and regulations (Huller 2102). From the analysis of the responses that Mrs. Huller gave; it is clear that, one needs knowledge of the National Incident Management System (NIMS), the Incident Command System (ICS), and the National Response Frameworks.

I must agree with Mrs., Huller that, working as an emergency manager is a challenging exercise especially when you have to ensure there is mutual agreement between a host nation and the military that is not addressed in the vast of Forces agreement. However, she mentioned that, the greatest challenge is educating the local population about the natural hazards as the dynamics of the PCS season makes it hard to capture every person PCSing into Okinawa.
