Hagerty Feature: The Leadership Secrets Podcast

Hagerty’s Executive Chairman and former FEMA Administrator, Brock Long, recently joined the Leadership Secrets podcast with Barry Moline to discuss the values of strategy and planning as a leader, and what he has learned in his more than two-decade career in emergency management.

“Emergency management is like a chair with four legs. The seat of that chair is your community, and the four legs represent different things. The first leg is a culture of preparedness within our society; the second leg is a strong state and local government response capability; the third leg is the private sector/ non-profit organizations; and the fourth is the firepower of FEMA and their federal government partners. If you go into the disaster preparedness, response, and recovery with all four legs, the chair is stable.”
