The CDC That Never Sleeps

When Bob Briley retired as a firefighter and paramedic in West Palm Beach, FL to work with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), he was accustomed to a 24/7 schedule with a certain level of unpredictability. He also knew that his poised under pressure temperament was an asset to his success. When he brought that skill set to CDC in 2009 as a Deployment Briefing Coordinator during H1N1, he may have solidified his path as one who works in the places that never sleep.
