Day-3 final day of ICS-300 starting out with another in class exercise!
It is imperative that we push all agencies to think outside of their normal comfort zone and look to alternate resources and like-minded professionals.
Not only other pros, but also standardizing the response so that everyone is on the same page, using the same terminology, same forms, and same plans and objectives.
Your agency’s mission is very important.
Your organizational goals are super important too.
But those SMART Objectives are SOOOO critical to everyone onscene as well as future operational periods.
And yes, the same truths still apply: coffee and collaboration are totes critical when a disaster first strikes.
But it also takes a consummate professional to continue the work after the response phase…but into recovery and mitigation. Thus ensuring your community some protection as we are always in a state of preparedness.
Our class also had lots of discussion on this slide as we view credentialing as a preparedness activity as we look to standardization and qualifications.
Great week and proud of the work from all participants in this class.
Looking forward to seeing all of you on the next big one.
