  • The head of North Dakota security and emergency management is in Fargo to talk about disaster response in the state's oil patch.
    State Homeland Security Division director Greg Wilz is scheduled to speak Monday afternoon in an event sponsored by the North Dakota State University department of emergency management.
    NDSU assistant professor of emergency management Carol Cwiak (SEE'-wack) says that while oil has brought many positive economic benefits, it has created or exacerbated emergency management issues at the local and state level.
    Cwiak says demands on infrastructure and the introduction of new oil-related hazards make emergency management even more important for businesses, government and private entities.
    The presentation is slated for 3 p.m. at the Plains room in the NDSU Memorial Union.
