Dan Pugh

Dan spent the first 20+ years of his career in public safety holding positions as a firefighter, paramedic, emergency manager, and disaster responder. He earned lots of letters after his name, which just make his business cards really long and obnoxious. After what seemed like a lifetime, Dan left his cushy 90 hour a week Director level government job to start his own consulting business focused on preparedness and public outreach.

Throughout Dan's career, he always had a hand in public outreach. This left Dan writing scores of education materials, business documents, and short stories to help people connect to preparedness efforts. Now, Dan writes more fanciful stories - and still some preparedness outreach stuff.

Dan has guest-hosted on other podcasts including "State of Ready" and "Your Brain On Facts". 

Dan's fandom labels include Nerdfighter, Gryffindor, and any labels you wish to ascribe to a fan of Star Trek, Star Wars, and Stargate.
