"Bill is very knowledgeable. Thanks!"

"These type of information sharing sessions are very useful."

"It made me aware on how things are working outside of FEMA, when it comes to our regional infrastructure, just with some of data given to us today. Especially the spending that the government spends to repair what Man and or Natural Disaster has done to this country and to other countries. I am glad to see that we can create a better tomorrow one minute, one hour, one day, one week and one year at a time. Thank you for opening my eyes and heart to see that we, Americans (Canadians) are making a better tomorrow: for our children, childrenís."
