Day-1 of the 2018 FEMA Master #PIO Course

Day-1 of the 2018 FEMA Master PIO (Public Information Officer) Program.


Obv at my favorite location: FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute.


Lots of super smart people in class from across the country including South Carolina, Florida, Ohio, Colorado, Oklahoma, Missouri, Maryland, Deleware, Texas, Indiana, Arizona, and Alaska. Whoa Nellie!

Solid discussion on public information, public involvement, strategic thinking, mission/goals, priorities, capabilities, solutions, communities vs tribes, NIMS/ICS, ESF-15, alert notification thresholds, trusted source of verified information, serotonin, public fears in 2017, hope, trust, stability, compassion, and most importantly, PIO networking/sharing of ideas.

Glad I wore a tie.


Apparently they know I tweet so shhhhhh. I have to pay attention.
