Back in Illinois with the team from Glendale Heights – good morning everyone!
Today, our Emergency Management Agency is bringing the heat as we talk about Emergency Management, crisis and how the magic works…esp during a disaster Starting out the morning welcome with Glendale Heights PD Police Chief Douglas Flint.
To start the morning off, I am honored to share the Incident Command System (ICS) to the leaders and directors from Glendale Heights and beyond.
(Truth be told, I kinda like being the opening act.)
I tailored the ICS part of the class to match the audience. Illustrating the need for ICS as well as the true responsibility in a disaster is critical esp for our peeps!
Our partners like Glendale Heights deserve to get the best info when providing for their community. And when the big one hits, they want a seamless working environment to operate.
Emergency Management = the perfect answer as we collaborate and coordinate with our all-hazards partners to provide resources, staff, etc….
Trust me, when the big one hits, the small stuff counts.
After lunch, we went over the Illinois law re: Emergency Management (301), talked about weather decision modeling, plans, crisis communications, and COOP/COG.
Check out Craig! He can turn on the charm when talking about COG!
Outstanding day with Glendale Heights leadership. Proud to work closely with our partners and leaders here.
Looking forward to tomorrow’s tabletop exercise.
