Day-2 of ICS…more than just a emergency response in your ORV

Day-2 of our ICS-400: Advanced ICS for Command and General Staff.

Fun stuff esp since many of our participants come from various backgrounds in response/recovery. Glad to see interaction and lotsa engagement between providers.

This is the crux of these types of emergency management classes. Aside from learning a bunch of things, in class, you easily build relationships for life.



Starting another ICS-400: Advanced ICS

Another solid start to a fun ICS-400: Advanced Incident Command System for Command and General Staff course.

Looking forward to expanding on the concepts in ICS-300 and enhancing it with some of my most recent disaster deployments Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.

2018 Day of Service #MLKDay 

A quick picture from Selma in March of 1965

No matter the race, creed, color, or religion – the Aloha spirit is everywhere.

Me? I dedicate my 2018 day of service to anyone in the #USA 🇺🇸…because I am working. 

I know many of you are working today, away from your family.  Your service to your community is of huge value to generations to come. Thank you for your service.

Stay safe & warm peeps on this #MLKDay
