Solid Day-2 of the All-Hazards Incident Management Team Logistics Section Chief Course at Ohio Task Force-1 in Dayton, (OH).
Outstanding planning by our friends from Dayton Fire, Tennessee Task Force-1, and DMAT officials on traffic flow issues esp focusing in and leveraging historical data to improve response times and evacuation routes during large scale events.
Afternoon was packed with solid discussion on Supply Unit Leader position with focus on costs and burn rates for large disasters. Close communications w/ the Finance Section Chief and Plans Section Chief is critical to a successful incident by minimizing overages and expenditures by everyone in the Command & General Staff.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Logistics makes the magic happen.
Also free MREs to everyone in class too. Yum!
