Vancouver Fire Department Chief Joe Molina has been selected to serve on a Federal Emergency Management Agency subcommittee focused on emergency response training and hazardous materials incidents involving railroads. Molina, serving with 22 others including two fire chiefs, was selected to the FEMA National Advisory Council RESPONSE Subcommittee. Recent legislation directed FEMA to establish the RESPONSE, or Railroad Emergency Services Preparedness Operational Needs and Safety Evaluation, subcommittee under its National Advisory Council. The subcommittee will provide recommendations to the council. Vancouver Mayor Timothy D. Leavitt thanked the state’s congressional delegation, which submitted letters of support for Molina’s application, in a news release from the city.
