In September of 2017, IIGR/IAEM Emergency Management Leadership Summit was held in Tokyo as IIGR’s 5thanniversary special event.
Six Japanese executives including Hon. Masako Mori joined the Executive PDTC and received certificates. The certificates were awarded by Ellis Sanely, the Chairman of IAEM, and Craig Fugate, the former FEMA Administrator.
The members who attended this summit are the first generations of emergency managers in Japan.
