Hi! I'm Alicia Johnson
I’m an Emergency Manager, Community Preparedness Expert, and Founder and CEO of Two Lynchpin Road. I’m passionate (and completely nerd-out) about helping communities and businesses prepare for natural disasters and other emergencies.
Things that I adore:
- My family (#boymom)
- Formula 1 Racing(Red Bull, all the way)
- Making kick-ass waffles for breakfast
- Historical equity and the Great Migration
- The 10 A.M. rule
- Drinking tea
- Catching up with my Sisters in Shine squad, and
- Homemade cold brew
When I’m not skillfully managing emergencies, I can be found taking photographs, dancing to the latest EDM, and planning my next travel adventure (6 countries, 45 states, and counting).

I’ve been on the ground for 20 years, working in emergency management and disaster resilience. I’ve served as an expert to NATO (yes, that NATO), built White House-recognized preparedness resources, and responded to countless disasters from wildfires to earthquakes to active shooters.
I’ve helped thousands of people through some pretty hard times and I’m a master at solving the big problems to help your community thrive after something tough.
You can expect:
- Tips on how to prepare for an emergency
- Inspiring true stories about communties reovering from disaster
- Insights on resilience, courage, and how to be a strong, capable leader during difficult times
Two Lynchpin Road recognizes that we are on the ancestral lands of the Coast Miwok, Pomo, and Wappo, who are the original caretakers of the Sonoma County, California area.
We respectfully acknowledge the Indigenous peoples who have been stewarding and maintaining relationship on this land as knowledge keepers for millennia.
As an organization, we are dedicated to understanding and educating others about historical and ongoing connections between land conservation, disaster impacts, and social inequities. This includes the histories of genocide, forced removal and displacement, and broken promises with Indigenous peoples as a part of American history.
This acknowledgment serves as a gesture of respect to the land we are located on.
