Your Faculty

Lucien G. CantonLucien G. Canton, CEM
Emergency Management Consultant
Lucien G. Canton, CEM (LLC)

When Lucien Canton talked his way into the San Francisco emergency operations center to offer his services during the Loma Prieta earthquake he never expected that it would spark a career change that would involve him in Federal disaster planning at the national level and see him appointed by Mayor Willie L. Brown, Jr in 1996 as the Director of Emergency Services for San Francisco.

He has served in over seventeen presidentially declared disasters and on an elite national response team and, over the years, has emerged as a major thought leader in emergency management, advocating the use of management concepts to professionalize a field that is often mischaracterized as a technical discipline. A frequent speaker at national conferences and guest lecturer at universities both in the United States and abroad, Canton’s book, Emergency Management: Concepts and Strategies for Effective Programs, is used as a textbook for both graduate and undergraduate courses. As a consultant, Canton specializes in helping managers lead better in crisis by understanding the human factors often overlooked in crisis planning.
