Mallet Named New Emergency Management Director

CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (April 10, 2017) – Charlotte County Administrator Ray Sandrock on Friday named Gerard “Jerry” Mallet as emergency management director. Mallet, who previously served as emergency management coordinator, has been acting director since the February retirement of longtime director Wayne Sallade.

Mallet, 62, joined the Emergency Management Department in 2004 after serving with the New York State Police for 27 years. He is certified as a Florida Professional Emergency Manager and received certificates of recognition for his work after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

“I’m excited to take on this challenge and continue to build a culture of preparedness in Charlotte County. We can’t control when hurricanes, tornadoes or floods happen, but we can be prepared to deal with them and protect as many lives and properties as possible,” Mallet said.

“Jerry is well-respected and well-connected within the emergency management community in our region and around the state,” said Sandrock. “Moving Jerry into the director position ensures continuity in our preparedness, planning and training as we head into another hurricane season in June.”
