His job was to ask the governor to deploy the National Guard during an early January snowstorm, and now his staff is requesting federal money to cover the costs of plowing streets around the clock and other cleanup.

John Hill, executive director of the Indiana Department of Homeland Security, spends much of his work time on the phone with Gov. Mike Pence and meeting with representatives from the Indiana Department of Transportation, National Guard, Indiana State Police and other state agencies. In his first year on the job, he had to help Indiana dig out from one of the worst winters in decades.

His goal is to prevent emergencies, such as school shootings, and help communities take care of themselves as best as possible when natural disasters hit. When communities need help from the state, he tries to ensure they get it.
