Mayor Walter Maddox on Leading the Respsone to the 2011 Tuscaloosa, Alabama Tornado

Join us for a conversation with Mayor Walter Maddox of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, who will speak about his city’s response to an EF4 tornado that hit on April 27, 2011. Despite leveling an eighth of the city, killing 53 people, and destroying or seriously damaging thousands of structures, the devastation could have been far greater had it not been for the mayor’s decision to revamp the city’s emergency management system in the years preceding the storm. During his talk, Mayor Maddox will discuss this reform and how he led the response to the storm, providing insight into the role political leaders can play in preparing for and responding to disasters.
