Most people hold Oscar parties or Emmy parties or GOT parties.
Today, I inadvertently hosted an ICS 300/400 update party.
And as the gracious host, all I had were fishbowl mints for my guests. 🤣
These new changes are going to force some changes at the State of Illinois level.
Good thing we are ahead of the curve on almost all of the bullet points.
Pretty excited to hear about the changes to ICS 300 and ICS 400 tomorrow. I know FEMA EMI has been working hard on these fundamental changes with the ICS structure and command and control.
The last update was really October 2013 so we are totes due for a refresh.
Yeah 2013-2019. Six years isn’t the typical cycle.
This refresh is going to be special as they embody the changes that DHS/FEMA Director of National Integration Doc Lumpkins has set forth in his NIMS refresh.
Proud to carry his work on throughout so many communities across this great country.
Little bunny Fufu better hide some eggs today!
What kind of bunny lays multi-colored eggs and abandons them in the middle of the field?
P.S. Shout out to all those parents who will be enjoying egg salad sandwiches for the rest of the week 🙋🏼♂️
