The Federal Emergency Management Agency‘s Youth Preparedness Council is comprised of 13 members (13-17 years of age) from across FEMA’s 10 regions and one of the panel’s members is from Acadiana! The distinguished members from FEMA Region 6 are Dorian Tre’Vaughn Gregory from Breaux Bridge, La., and Jonathan DeLong from Austin, Texas. These young leaders are dedicated to public service, are making a difference in their community, and are expanding their impact as national advocates for youth preparedness. FEMA’s Youth Preparedness Council is a unique opportunity for a select group of young people to serve on a highly-distinguished national council and to share their opinions, experiences, ideas and solutions to strengthen the nation’s resiliency for all types of disasters. Council members were nominated by individuals who can attest to their preparedness activities; they also demonstrate a willingness to represent the youth perspective on emergency preparedness and to take information back to their communities for sharing. Council members will have the opportunity to participate in a community preparedness roundtable event in Washington, D.C., where they will advise and ask questions on youth disaster preparedness with the leadership of national organizations working on this critical priority. Council members are eligible to serve for two years.

Congratulations, Dorian!
