  • Summary
    Todd De Voe is an emergency management educator and the host of EM Weekly, Business Continuity Today, Natural Disaster & Emergency Management Expo's Prepare, Respond, Recover Show. Also, Todd produces EM Student and The OC Politics Show.

    Todd's involvement in Emergency Response, Emergency Management, Education, and Volunteer Management started when he became a firefighter in upstate New York. Todd joined the United States Navy and became a Hospital Corpsman assigned to the Fleet Marine Force. He served as an emergency medical responder (EMT) in some of Los Angeles County's toughest parts after his service.

    Todd's first emergency management position was with the City of Dana Point. He led the city's effort to become the second city in California to earn the TsunamiReady designation from the National Weather Service. Todd helped the County of Orange become the first county in the nation to receive the TsunamiReady destination.

    The City of Seal Beach recruited Todd to develop its emergency management program. Todd responded to the Salon Meritage shooting, the worst mass murder in the history of Orange County. The lessons learned after the event highlighted the role of emergency managers during these types of events. Todd left Seal Beach and moved to emergency management in higher education.

    Coastline Community College asked Todd to join the steering committee to help develop their emergency management program. Later that year, he was invited to join the faculty. Today, Todd continues to teach for Coastline College and The University of California Irvine.

    Todd is a lifelong learner, and he is a graduate of the National Emergency Management Executive Academy's Cohort VII. He continues to research and write about important emergency management issues, crisis leadership, business continuity, and community relicense

    Todd is an active member of the International Association of Emergency Managers and is on the Region 9 board.

    Todd is an avid reader. Some of his favorite topics are leadership, emergency management, history, philosophy, and spy thrillers.

  • Highlights
    I am passionate about emergency management and what it can do for our communities. I love to teach and engage with the members of the audience. As a professor, I learn as much from my students as I teach. As a profession, we are collaborative by design, I bring that practice to my lectures. I am interactive, engaging, and collaborative, and passionate about how to make our profession better to serve our communities.
