Hamilton County All-Hazards NIMS ICS-300 class during #NatlPrep Month!

Part of being prepared is taking classes with your local public safety professionals.

Today, Hamilton County EMA partnered with Ohio Emergency Management Agency to bring ICS-300: Intermediate ICS for Expanding Incidents. 3-day intensive course to talk about the basics of ICS and NIMS and how it applies to all public safety and everyone during an incident/event.

If I counted correctly, we have almost all ESFs represented today! #awesome

Training is key as we continue to push preparedness efforts throughout the county and state. Learning about capabilities is key in any disaster response.

Glad to see everyone engaged today…esp on disaster response. 

This afternoon, in the world of tabletop exercise disaster training, we will likely ruin Central City, decimate Columbiana County, and then trash the State of Columbia. Oh yeah, and of course flood Emerald City too.
