Day-2 of the Incident Management Team Plans Section Chief course here in SW Ohio.
Without accurate info and Situational Awareness Common Operating Picture (SA/COP) we as response/recovery agencies cannot support our objectives. And of course, from a learning perspective, all of our participants had fun.
As an Emergency Management Instructor, it is our duty to talk about all-hazards responses. You see that it’s easy to talk about Fire or EMS or Law Enforcement – all the peeps we deal with daily. HOWEVER, we are more likely to find significant challenges with factions that we don’t normally interact or train with.
Interactive trainings like this in our class promotes interactive learning and sprouts huge discussion on response priorities and addresses the elephant in the room – how do we overcome egos and better serve all our communities.
Glad to have so much participation from our USAR and DoD partners.
