AH IMT LOFR course and a quick SURprise

Another All-Hazards Incident Management Team course? I’m in!

Yep-bring on the new LOFR Candidates! (LOFR=Liaison Officer)

Good morning Franklin County Emergency Management and Homeland Security!

Great to see some old friends and partners and pros!

Welcome intro by FCEMHS Deputy Director Darrel Koerber to all of our participants from across the country.

Where from?

Holey moley!

Lots to discuss as we dive deep into the role of the Liaison Officer.

And of course how they fit into the Command and General Staff structure of the ICS-207 chart.

Great dialog between groups as we had lots of participation from locals as well as Federal partners.

Don’t mind the dated course materials….I doubt any Liaison officer still uses a direct view computer monitor anymore.

But it was great to see such participation from the USCG.

Additionally, we had great dialog from the Ohio National Guard, health departments, Emergency Management, and the US National Park Service.

Ahhhhh, LOFR = fun class!

Soooooo at lunch, I opted to swing by for a SURprise.

That’s right – hello Ohio EMA and hiya Emily!

This will be the second Advanced PIO course that I stopped in on. And yes, lots of the participants were my former students….so it was great to see that kind of return as they progress on up through the ranks and continuing their education with PIOs and ESF-15.

While turning in paperwork, I happen to also run into Steve and Susan too!

Fun times back in Ohio for a quick hello!

Reporting live from the steps of the State of Ohio Emergency Management Agency….
