Day-4 with the APIO class here at FEMA EMI

Day-4 with the Advanced PIO class here at FEMA Emergency Management Institute!

Lots to see and do esp w/ the lack of social media and the huge increase in EAS Alerts for public warning.

Also had a visit from the Governor of Columbia aka Maryland’s EM PIO Ed McDonough.

Great to see that partnership between local, county, and state agencies all working toward a Federal Declaration.

Quick visit from the USFA Administrator…

…and no, the pressers didn’t stop. We used this as a teaching moment. Just because a disaster is ongoing, life does not stop for VIP visits!

Solid day with everyone from the APIO and MPIO class.
