OEMHS welcomes Dr. Earl Stoddard as the new Director of the Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security.  Dr. Stoddard joins us from the County’s Department of Health and Human Services where he served as the Program Administrator for the Public Health Emergency Preparedness & Response program.  While at DHHS, he provided oversight of personnel and plans necessary for the County to effectively respond to and recover from public health emergencies, and worked in close concert with OEMHS and other County response agencies to support multi-agency coordination around disaster preparedness and response.  Prior to joining Montgomery County government in 2014, he worked with the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security (CHHS).   Dr. Stoddard has a Masters of Public Health from Johns Hopkins University, a Ph.D. in Cell and Molecular Biology from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and a B.S. degree in Biology from the University of Delaware.

As the Director of the Office of Emergency Management & Homeland Security (OEMHS), Dr. Stoddard will be responsible for the coordination of Montgomery County's emergency response activities during county wide emergencies, management and coordination of County homeland security and emergency management grant activities and the vision and management for county-wide planning, training, exercise, mitigation and corrective action programs. 

We are delighted Dr. Stoddard is joining us, and we greatly look forward to working with him in his new role as director of the Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security.
