The emergency management profession is designed to establish and build connections with other communities, partners, and disciplines.  The Global Crisis Management Report builds on this principle and advocates that by sharing information with various partners and disciplines around the world we can be better prepared for present and future crises.

Home: About


The Global Crisis Management Report was created and is currently managed by Steve Detwiler.  Mr. Detwiler has been a local and Federal emergency manager in the United States for over 20 years. 


This publication was first created in 2000 as a simple e-mail message to share news and resources with a select group of colleagues.  In 2005 it was distributed mainly through e-mail under the name Emergency Manager’s Weekly Report.  The first use of social media pages to spread the information it contains began in 2011.  In 2022 the Emergency Manager’s Weekly Report was renamed the Global Crisis Management Report.  This name change was made to better reflect the topics and professions already being covered and to highlight that crises rarely observe lines on a map.
