Chairman's Corner

Howdy!
Greetings from Aggieland. Al Davis here; Deputy Director of the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), and as of July 17, 2017, the Chairman of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC).

Since 1998, the NDPC has been a major training partner of DHS/FEMA and the provider of choice for emergency preparedness training for responders in all disciplines and states and local jurisdictions. We are exceedingly proud and honored to be a critical component of the nation’s collaborative efforts to create a culture of preparedness. Since its inception, the seven members of the NDPC have collectively trained over 2.6 million participants.

As the incoming Chairman, I am totally committed to continuing our tradition of service and excellence as we execute the mission and pursue the vision of the NDPC outlined by its founders. During my tenure, in addition to continuing the focus on providing quality training under the Homeland Security National Training Program, I will also focus on four pillars: stewardship, relevance, the NDPC Strategic Plan, and the NDPC Legislative Strategy.

In addition to our DHS/FEMA (NTED) partners, another key partner is the NDPC State Administrative Agency (SAA) Advisory Council. The members of the council are our peer conduits to the SAA Training Point of contacts (TPOCs) and Regional Training Managers (RTMs) in the 10 FEMA Regions. Please see the listing of the Advisory Council members for the representative of your region. I encourage you to reach out to them and provide them with feedback on our training efforts or any related concern. You can also email me at alphonse.davis@teex.tamu.edu.

I also want to emphasize the importance of engaging the leadership of the various national responder organizations, to include the NSA, IACP,IAFC, NEMA and IAEMS; I believe we have a common interest and mission and are inextricably linked, so it is imperative that we connect and communicate. I’ll be reaching out to you.

In closing, I sincerely look forward to serving and working with my NDPC colleagues, DHS/FEMA partners and the entire emergency responder community as we work together to keep our nation safe and promote a culture of preparedness!

Sincerely,
Al Davis
Colonel, U.S. Marine Corps (Retired)
NDPC Chairman
