For more than 30 years, William Llewellyn has aided both public and private entities throughout California in the process of hazard mitigation, from the planning stage through implementation and recovery.
His roles in public assistance and emergency management make him uniquely qualified to take proactive steps in protecting California municipalities against drought, flooding, fire, and other catastrophes. At Harris, William collaborates across teams to incorporate hazard mitigation and climate change resilience measures into everything we do.
William started his career in emergency management services as a field consultant engineer, progressing to program manager and later becoming a field emergency services coordinator. Federal, state, and local entities relied on William to provide technical expertise and direct support in times of emergency or any natural or manmade event.
While serving as an Emergency Services Coordinator with Cal OES, William participated in the planning committee for Sacramento County and San Joaquin County. His familiarity with the Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plans in these areas influenced state and federal approval of the Sacramento Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan and the San Joaquin County Local Mitigation Plan.
In addition to hazard mitigation, William has provided guidance for sub grantees in obtaining state and federal public assistance funding following a disaster. He has also helped public assistance programs implement objectives in accordance with laws, regulations, and policies related to assessment, inspections, reports, and beyond.
