Our guest this morning is Freddy Zelaya.

Freddy was on our show a year ago to discuss those pesky hurricanes they experience in Florida.

Freddy has been the Emergency Management Coordinator for the City of Fort Lauderdale since April 2007.

He began his career in emergency management 15 years ago after Hurricane Andrew.

In 1998, he was given the opportunity to serve the community of Miami-Dade County working for the American Red Cross of Greater Miami and The Keys Chapter as a Human Resources and Volunteer Management Specialist.

Freddy then went on to work for Seaboard Marine as a Human Resources Specialist and had the opportunity to assist with the aftermath of 9/11 in New York City.

In 2002, he returned to the American Red Cross of Greater Miami as Disaster Management Coordinator and was then recruited to work for the City of Fort Lauderdale as the Emergency Management Coordinator.

His responsibilities include: Mitigation, Planning, Response and Recovery of all Hazardous materials within the City of Fort Lauderdale.
