Emergency Management

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Sherri Laffoon, Chesterfield County’s deputy emergency management coordinator, was awarded the 2018 Virginia Emergency Management Association President’s Award. 

The award recognizes Laffoon for her dedication to the preparedness and resiliency of Virginians through her work with the VEMA. As chair of the VEMA’s membership and marketing committee, Laffoon single-handedly increased the organization’s membership to include emergency management representatives from all sectors, public and private. 

“As a lifelong Chesterfield County resident, it is an honor to represent the county in the field of emergency management,” Laffoon said. “Being able to meet and train those in our community is a rewarding career. I am also very fortunate to work with and learn from emergency managers all over the commonwealth. To be recognized for the work I enjoy doing is humbling.”

Laffoon serves as the deputy coordinator of emergency management and has been with emergency management since October 2009. Prior to emergency management, Laffoon worked in the Chesterfield Emergency Communications Center for three years. Laffoon has a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice administration and earned the Professional Emergency Manager designation.
