Biographical/Historical:     The Division of Emergency Management exists to ensure that Florida is prepared to respond to emergencies, recover from them, and mitigate against their impacts.  The Division was created In 1984 in the Department of Community Affairs (DCA).  in July 2006, the Division became a separate budget entity no longer subject to control, supervision, or direction by DCA in any manner, though still receiving professional, technological and administrative services from DCA (s. 252.35, F.S.; Chapter 2006-70; HB 1435, 2006).  The Division reports directly to the Executive Office of the Governor, and the Division director is appointed by the Governor.



    John Ellis "Jeb" Bush, the forty-third Governor of Florida, began his gubernatorial term on January 5, 1999.  In 2003, Bush took the oath of office for his second term, having defeated Democrat Bill McBride for re-election.

    After graduating from the University of Texas in Austin, Jeb Bush pursued a banking career in Houston, Venezuela and back to Houston.  Bush was convinced to come to Florida from Texas in 1980 by builder Armando Codina.  Prior to being elected Governor, Bush served as president and chief operating officer of the Miami-based Codina Group, a real estate development company, and was active in civic and political affairs.  He established the Foundation for Florida's Future and volunteered to assist the Miami Children's Hospital, the United Negro College Fund of South Florida, the United Way of Dade County, and the Dade County Homeless Trust.  In 1995, he wrote "Profiles in Character," a book profiling 14 of Florida's civic heroes.  Bush served as Florida's Secretary of Commerce under Governor Bob Martinez and he was the Republican nominee for governor in 1994.  He has been married to Columba Garnica Gallo, a native of Leon, Mexico since 1977 and they have three children, George, Noelle and John Ellis, Jr.
