Emergency Response Planner

We are happy to announce that Collin Buckner has joined our Emergency Preparedness team as an Emergency Response Planner! As a former TED Talk participant, we feel confident he will be an excellent presenter! Collin relocated to Massachusetts from Mobile, Alabama where he worked as an NOAA contractor supporting the NOAA Disaster Preparedness Program in preparedness, training, research, and response efforts while seated at NOAA’s Gulf of Mexico Disaster Response Center. 

Prior to working in Alabama, Collin spent nearly a year on Cape Cod as part of the Barnstable County AmeriCorps working with the Barnstable County Regional Emergency Planning Committee (BCREP) and the Town of Falmouth Marine and Environmental Services. Little did he know that meeting Carl Simons, Senior Emergency Response Manager with HW, during his time with BCREP would lead to a planner opportunity at HW!

Collin earned a B.A. in Integrated Studies from Miami University in Ohio. His work will be primarily supporting our Emergency Preparedness team with water security projects.

When Collin is not working, he enjoys exercising in the gym, trail running, riding his bike along the Cape Cod Canal or Cape Cod Rail Trail, hanging out with his dog Arlen and reading Malcolm Gladwell! Welcome, Collin!
