Peter Perez, new emergency management director for the City of Greeley

GREELEY, Colo. — The City of Greeley is pleased to announce Peter Perez as the new emergency management director. With an extensive background in emergency management and public safety, Perez brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record of effective leadership. 

Perez is a certified emergency manager from the International Association of Emergency Managers and joins the City of Greeley from the City of Killeen, Texas, where he served as the director of homeland security and emergency management. In this role, he managed the recovery and reimbursement process for two presidentially declared disasters, coordinated the city’s COVID-19 response, and managed the Winter Storm Uri response. 

Prior to his tenure in Killeen, Perez held various positions in emergency management, including roles as emergency management coordinator for Killeen, deputy joint inter-agency task force liaison for the Boy Scouts of America’s 24th World Scout Jamboree, and emergency management analyst for the City of Longmont, Colorado. In these roles, he demonstrated exceptional skills in budget management, inter-agency coordination and community preparedness. 

“We are confident that Peter will bring innovative solutions and strategic leadership to the city's emergency management initiatives,” Assistant City Manager Kelli Johnson said. “His extensive experience and dedication to public safety will be invaluable in enhancing the city's preparedness, response and recovery efforts.” 

In his new role as emergency management director, Perez will be responsible for developing and maintaining the city's emergency management system. This role involves broad authority to set program priorities, ensure compliance with various regulations, manage budgets, coordinate with multiple agencies, and lead efforts in disaster mitigation, preparation, response, and recovery. 

“I am excited to work with the great team at City of Greeley and our amazing community partners to build a more resilient city in motion, helping to provide the community members with a thriving and sustainable future,” Perez said. 

Perez’s first day in his new role was June 27.
