(Woodstock, VT)— The Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission (TRORC) is very pleased to announce that Kevin W. Geiger, AICP CFM was recently presented with the “Emergency Manager of the Year “ award by the Northeast States Emergency Consortium (NESEC).    The award was presented at the 2014 Vermont Emergency Management Conference held at Lake Morey Inn in Fairlee Vermont.  The award was presented by Secretary Jeb Spaulding of the Agency of Administration and Joe Flynn, Director of the Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security.

NESEC develops, promotes, and coordinates comprehensive “all-hazards” emergency management activities throughout the Northeast. This includes all phases of emergency management: preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation. NESEC’s work is a vital component to planning and response for the safety and welfare of the over 40 million people living in the Northeast. NESEC works in partnership with federal, state and local governments, and private organizations to reduce losses of life and property when the next disaster strikes the Northeast.

TRORC Executive Director Peter Gregory notes that Kevin is especially deserving of this recognition.  “Kevin is outstanding in his ability to use his knowledge of emergency management, resilience and mitigation activities with the land use and floodplain management responsibilities of the region’s member towns.   The TRORC, its towns and the state are fortunate to have someone with his skills and passion.”

Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission is one of eleven regional planning commissions in the state of Vermont.  TRORC’s mission is to advocate for the needs of our member towns and to articulate a vision and carry out actions that build a thriving regional economy while enhancing the quality of life for its citizens.
