As an exemplary community firefighter paramedic in Memphis, Dr. Lori Moore-Merrell always showed a strong commitment to her community that shaped the rest of her career. Moore-Merrell moved onto the International Association of Fire Fighters, where she had a distinguished 26-year career before founding the International Public Safety Data Institute (IPSDI) where she currently serves as president and CEO.
An active contributor everywhere she goes, Moore-Merrell has consistently served the homeland security mission through the education of first responders. She paved the way on educating agencies on the use of data to plan for emergency incidents and implementing data-driven decisions in real time at emergency scenes. Her work expands to contributions within federal agencies including DHS and the FBI, nonprofit organizations like the National Fire Protection Association and several universities, and local, state, and federal organizations.
Moore-Merrell is not just a member of her community and this nation – she is a contributor who looks to provide the opportunity for growth, education, and service to first responders across the nation; she is a leader of leaders, whose efforts have always been for the progression and protection of our homeland. HSToday will be interviewing Dr. Lori Moore-Merrell on February 18th at 1pm EST.
