When Dinnin first joined BCFS, the agency operated a children’s campus on the south end of San Antonio, Texas. Today, under his leadership, BCFS is recognized nationally as a leader in emergency management and response, and is often tapped to provide medical sheltering and other critical emergency support services to federal, state and local governments during disasters.
