Kent appoints new Emergency Management Director

Some Kent residents have questioned why the new Emergency Management Director is not a Kent resident.  First Selectwoman Jean Speck says the former Emergency Management Director and Deputy Emergency Management Director resigned their positions for other endeavors. Because of the current emergency, she had to prioritize filling at least the Director position as quickly as possible.  Speck says David Becker worked with the pair, and the Volunteer Fire Department, during the ice jam emergency a couple of years ago, and has been helping during the last few weeks.  She says he has the necessary communication, collaboration, and organizational skills needed to navigate the complex and detailed landscape of the FEMA reimbursement process that is to come.  He has also helped organize a Citizen Emergency Response Team.  Speck added that the emergency is not geographically-focused and the technology is available to move to a virtual Emergency Operations Center.
