DHSEM Announces New Mitigation and Recovery Staff Member Kerry Webster

The Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is excited to announce a new member of Mitigation and Recovery team. Kerry Webster recently joined the team as a Mitigation Specialist. She will be working to support our local and state partners with all aspects of mitigation including project development, multi-hazard planning, and grant management.

Webster has been involved in emergency management since 2001. Her previous experience as a structural and wildland firefighter, and most recently in wildland-urban interface fire planning and mitigation, makes her a well placed addition to the team. She has responded on all-hazard incidents, including tornado recovery and the recent floods. She earned her undergraduate degree in Environmental, Population and Organismic Biology and her master’s degree in Geography at CU Boulder, focusing on disturbance ecology. Kerry has worked for the Colorado State Forest Service, USDA Forest Service, National Park Service, and Anchor Point, LLC.
