New Emergency Management Coordinator
The City of Englewood, in partnership with Arapahoe County, has appointed Lisa Clay as Emergency Management Coordinator. In her new role, Clay plans to tailor a cohesive approach to emergency preparedness that is unique to the growing needs of Englewood.
“Lisa will integrate emergency management into the culture and help increase resiliency across the city,” said Emergency Manager Nathan Fogg.
This agreement provides an added benefit and value to both the City and County. On the day-to-day, the City has an Emergency Management Coordinator, but that scales up to an office of seven in the event of an emergency.
“We now have the ability to seamlessly coordinate emergency planning efforts between the two jurisdictions,” said Deputy Emergency Manager Ashley Cappel.
Clay earned her master’s degree in Environmental Science from the University of Colorado Denver and has diverse experience in both the public and private sectors. She most recently worked with Denver area communities to develop FEMA-approved local hazard mitigation plans.
“We are excited to have Lisa on board and will leverage her experience facilitating planning processes. One of our first tasks is the Englewood Emergency Operations Plan update which Lisa will coordinate with a steering committee of subject matter experts within the City,” Cappel stated.
