Employee of the Month
State Emergency Management Agency
Elizabeth Weyrauch, State Hazard Mitigation Officer within the State Emergency Management Agency, has been selected as the December, 2014 Employee of the Month for the Department of Public Safety. Elizabeth was selected for this award for her outstanding effort throughout the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) review of Missouri’s Hazard Mitigation Assistance Program. The knowledge, expertise, and dedication that Elizabeth exhibited throughout the review process were essential to the state program’s Enhanced Status designation being approved. Missouri’s designation of Enhanced Status, in turn, translates into better service to and more effective protection of Missouri citizens, as well as additional mitigation funding.
