Day-1 of the FEMA OEMA Basic Public Information Officer course here at Lake County EMA!
With a welcome from Joe and the gang here in Lake County.
For those wondering, how close are we to the nuclear EPZ?
Yeah, real close.
So let’s hit this PIO stuff!
Like all PIO classes, we hit the basics of being a PIO as well as what one can do with a few others tips as the emergency situation gets more complex.
And since we love the real-time training, we pull all participants into the mock interviews.
Awwww yeah, no hiding in our class.
Outstanding first day with all participants from across the state from various public safety agencies including Fire, EMS, Police, Emergency Management, Amateur radio, and other government services.
