New PEMA Chief

The new head of the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (or PEMA) started work this week. Robert French is a native of Westmoreland County and most recently served as deputy adjutant general of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard. DUQ's Jen Rehill spoke with General French at PEMA headquarters in Harrisburg about his goals for the agency, and what the agency can learn from the Valentine's Day snow storm which stranded hundreds of motorists on Interstate 78 for as long as 24 hours.

Listen to the full-length story here.
