W. Russell Webster, Federal Preparedness Coordinator, DHS
W. Russ Webster is a 1977 graduate of the US Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut. During his 26 year military service, he served in two ships and commanded two shore stations, including USCG Group Woods Hole, Massachusetts, the largest shore rescue unit in the United States.
During that tour, he was the Coast Guard's Incident Commander for the response to both the JFK Jr and Egypt Air flight 990 air crashes in 1999.
In 2001, he was the director for Coast Guard operations from Maine to New Jersey and coordinated regional operations in response to the 9 -11 terrorist attacks.
Upon retirement from the Coast Guard in 2003, he transitioned to DHS civilian service with the TSA, where he occupied three positions at Boston's Logan Airport, a Category X airport that was the hub for seven other airports within the state. During his four and a half years with TSA Boston, he co-led a planning effort with all regional stakeholders with a vested interest in preventing and responding to terrorist attacks in the transportation systems. That effort produced agreed upon memorandums of understanding and a shared strategic plan developed by and for the partners.
Russ Webster transitioned to FEMA R1 as the region's first Federal Preparedness Coordinator on February 4, 2008. As the FPC, he is responsible for enhancing individual, community and state preparedness throughout New England. He does this with a professional staff of 20, who plan, train educate and exercise with all six states and select constituencies including schools, the private sector, nuclear power plant communities and government agencies. He and his wife Elizabeth live in Cape Elizabeth, Maine with their two children Andrew, 21, and Noelle, age 15.
Russ was recently named as one of two Deputies for Secretary Napolitano's H1N1 Regional Coordination Team.
