William Craig Fugate (born May 14, 1959) was confirmed by the U.S. Senate in 2009 to be the administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. He had been the Director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management. He was appointed director by Gov. Jeb Bush in 2001 and later re-appointed by Gov. Charlie Crist.

Fugate trained in high school as a volunteer firefighter and has cultivated a low profile during his two decades in emergency management. He is also the founder of disastersrus.org, a website with disaster planning advice and links to disaster-related resources.
