A fine start to this crisp morning as the DuPage County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management starting the FEMA NDPTC Winter Weather Hazards course!
Welcome intros by Director Murray Snow to our participants from across the state!
Glad to see so many of our most trusted partners here today with almost all Emergency Support Functions represented.
Great to have NDPTC Instructor Rob Dale here again from Michigan where we know the weather there is more worserer than here.
His insight from a small EM agency and weather perspective allows us to see how to increase our ability to address and target specific audiences.
Outstanding to have John Scala. I love his teaching style and ability to share critical points in class is critical because science is…well…hard.
John’s ability to answer questions and explain complex weather issues is so important esp to those of us who are not trained as a MET. Additionally, several of our participants recognize him from his time as a broadcast meteorologist days.
With this class stacked w/ legit meteorologists, I am proud that these classes are a big hit with our peeps!
Just in time because the weather outside is frightful…
Stay warm peeps!
