John began his career over 20 years ago with the development of one of the first mass notification systems in the emergency management industry.
After a successful term as a project manager and territory representative for this global company, John used these experiences to transfer to the infrastructure and advanced communication fields. One of John’s most gratifying undertakings is the accomplishments he achieved while with the Red Cross as the lead for Emergency Support Functions (ESF) Mass Care and Logistics for the State of Alabama. While deployed in that position, he managed countless Level 1 – Level 4 disasters around the country including DR 671-15, DR 718 , DR 145-13, DR 750-13, DR077-13, Alabama 3/13 OTH, Central AL 4/14 FLT and the Dothan Alabama Hostage Situation.

John has assisted countless clients in the healthcare field, as well as state and local jurisdictions. He holds many advanced certifications from FEMA National Emergency Training Center, Emergency Management Institute, Center for Domestic Preparedness, and the private sector, including IS 100, 200, 300, 700, 800 and over 300 hours credit in the FEMA Professional Development Series.
