It is humbling to think of the vast opportunities that a past director of FEMA has on a large scale, yet his passion is giving back to emergency services through his focused efforts with specific companies. I know he will have a positive impact on where our company is going and on what services we ultimately deliver to our clients and their communities.  That is pretty exciting,’ said Mr. Snook.

At this point in my career it is about giving back and making a difference, and that is exactly what I feel ESCI is about. I look forward to sharing my experiences and contributing to the future direction and growth of this company.’
