Robert Baldwin has been in the Emergency Management/Preparedness field since 2009 and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Emergency Preparedness and Homeland Security in 2012. He started his emergency preparedness career in Indiana as a Deputy Director with Jackson County Emergency Management in 2009. In 2014, Robert continued his preparedness career while working as a Community Preparedness and Resilience Manager with the American Red Cross in Kentucky. Before coming to Clayton County Health District, Robert served as a Planner and an Area Manager with the Commonwealth of Kentucky Emergency Management Agency.

Robert is a believer in the importance of whole community emergency preparedness and response; as a director, he understands that emergency preparedness does not work unless all members of the community are actively included in the process. He loves discussing emergency preparedness, especially with younger adults interested in learning more about the field.
