December 20, 2013


The holiday season is once again here, and we wish you all the best during this special time of the year. 

Along with the opportunity to spend quality time with friends and family, please take time this season to rest, relax and recuperate from a challenging year. We know that is easier said than done but you have earned it by how you contributed over this past year  serving communities and disaster survivors; all while facing unique challenges as  Federal employees.  We know we speak for everyone on our senior leadership team when I say we value your efforts and are grateful for your service.

We are sure we will continue to face challenges in the year ahead but have complete confidence that our team will continue to rise to the occasion, push ourselves and support and serve the public. Your actions this past year increased our nation’s resiliency, strengthened the foundation for the future, and harnessed the power of an integrated and collaborative emergency management community.

On behalf of FEMA leadership, we thank you for your tireless dedication, and wish you and your loved ones a safe, healthy and joyous holiday season.

Warm Regards,

Craig and Rich
