First day of Ohio EMA’s ICS-300: Intermediate ICS for Expanding Incidents class.
With so many VIPs here from various agencies, I’m on my best behavior. Participants from three different states (Ohio, Indiana, and West Virginia). Numerous higher education staff, Fire/EMS and law enforcement, Health Department, VOAD, and Federal agencies like the Department of Justice US Marshal Service.
Special thanks to the senior administration from Belmont College for hosting this state class.
Lots of engagement and spirited discussion esp focused on college campus safety. Outstanding!
Solid debate on unified command as well as resource ordering.
Trying to get “stuff” to support operations is tough. Delicate balance between command and general staff is important and critical.
But more importantly, we are building relationships before an event, an emergency, or a disaster.
