About EDM Digest

EDM Digest began in November 2015 as an initiative to gather, report, and interpret emergency and disaster news and information on a timely basis for use by the emergency management community and the general public. This news site is maintained by a network of field experts who cover topics dealing with emergency management, disaster management, emergency medicine, aviation safety, climate issues, weather incidents, and other important EDM elements.

Our authors and contributors are dedicated to bringing you a roundup of the current emergency and disaster news from around the globe, complete with commentary and analysis directed at bringing the sheer volume of events into a manageable picture that you can act on.

EDM Digest’s authors and contributors helm from widely varying backgrounds that have one thing in common—a strong desire for achieving safety, security, and prosperity through education and public service.
