On Monday, the 2009-2010 class of Gubernatorial Fellows visited the State Emergency Operations Center during the Level 1 activation for Hurricane Ida. The Fellows got to see first-hand the state’s response to the impending storm, including the roles their agencies play as members of the State Emergency Response Team. The Fellows also got to meet with representatives from the Florida National Guard and received a briefing from the Interim Director, Ruben D. Almaguer.
The Florida Gubernatorial Fellows program was created from the belief that the best way to ensure Florida’s greatness is to actively educate and cultivate its future leaders. As Fellows, participants fulfill roles of critical responsibility, and interact closely with the state’s top leaders.
