Homeland security director completes advanced academy

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

Eric Carter, CAPCOG homeland security director, recently graduated from FEMA’s National Emergency Management Advance Academy adding more specialized skills and training to help communities manage their dynamic and resilient emergency management needs throughout the CAPCOG ten-county region.

The week-long residency academy reinforced qualities needed to manage emergency management programs and provided relevant management theories and concepts. It also taught critical skills to perform emergency management responsibilities such as program management and oversight, effective communication at all levels, integrated collaboration, and strategic thinking.

Carter has completed incident command training and FEMA's professional development series, which teaches seven courses to include training on conducting exercises and emergency planning, being an influential leader and effective communicator, and developing and managing volunteers. Carter has a bachelor's degree in Emergency Administration and Planning from the University of North Texas, and a master’s in Public Administration from the University of Texas at Arlington.
