He has served on the county council for Howard County, Md., and was a vice president at the University of Maryland Medical System Corp. He also spent 26 years in the Navy.

Scrader will play a key role in advancing the department's efforts in creating a common framework for emergency management, said Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff.
