Ned Wright,CEM will be missed

It is with sorrow that we inform you that the emergency management community has lost a great member: Ned Wright. He fought cancer until the end and that came the  night of November 11.

While Ned’s last post was as a fed in DC he would want to be remembered for his local work on the ground for Linn County, Iowa. If you are so inclined, know that he favored donations to the American Red Cross and because he never liked knowing that someone would go  to bed hungry – any canned goods donations to a local  food pantry would be an appropriate way to remember him.

It is likely he has already reviewed and revised the  emergency plans for heaven. Let’s keep his wife, Lisa  Gibney, in our thoughts as she is also a great emergency manager in her own right.
