Hi! I’m Matthew Hogan. I always knew I wanted to work in Emergency Management, but I never thought I’d be blogging about it!
After several social occasions where people were genuinely interested in my job, I thought I’d join those trying to bring emergency planning out of the bunker.
I’m a Vice Chair of the London Branch of the Emergency Planning Society (EPS), Member of the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) and an associate member of the Institute of Civil Protection and Emergency Management (ICPEM).
In 2015 I was awarded a Commendation for leadership in emergency response from the Metropolitan Police for my work during the Kingsway Fire in Central London. The team that I managed in 2012 won the National Capability Award from the Emergency Planning Society.
