NEW: RIEMA Director Stepping Down

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

 

The Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency (RIEMA) has announced that Executive Director Theresa C. Murray has just stepped down.

Murray cited eldercare commitments and a desire to focus on her work as a Federal Contractor as her reasons for leaving her post in her resignation letter to Governor Lincoln Chafee.

Murray’s last day will be February 15.

"Theresa Murray has been an effective and committed leader at RIEMA," Chafee said. "I was able to witness her work first-hand during Hurricane Sandy, and Theresa was a key partner in our efforts to guide Rhode Island through that storm safely and securely. I understand Theresa's need to focus on caring for elderly family members, I wish her well, and I thank her for her service to our state."

In an RIEMA statement, Murray said she is "honored to have been able to give back to the State of Rhode Island" and is "pleased with RIEMA's establishment of the Rhode Island Business Emergency Operations Center, the Partners in Preparedness Initiative, the School Safety Program and for managing Federal grant funds with integrity."

Murray also cited the issuance of a revised 2004 State Emergency Operations Plan and raising awareness for business continuity planning and cyber security as accomplishments during her tenure.

Murray had been in her position since January 2012.
