Day-1 of ICS-300 at Elmhurst Hospital

Day-1 of our ICS-300 class at Elmhurst Hospital!

However, I am not sure about us teaching the childbirth part of the class.

I guess if you wanted to account for all resources, we would need a new T-card and check in process for the new kiddos. HA!

Great welcome message from the Elmhurst Fire Deputy Fire Chief and the Elmhurst EM Coordinator.

Great discussion from all agencies here including Fire, EMS, Police, Public Works, Hospital, EMS, Health Department, National Guard, and countless other agencies here.

Great partnerships from everyone as we discuss ongoing response and recovery efforts from various activities and incidents. Working together will increase our preparedness level and help our coordination esp when we spin up the county EOC.

Glad to see everyone here for class. And yes, don’t forget that #OnWednesdaysWeWearPink

Yeah yeah, suit up baby!

Welcome to January 2019!

Holey moley-welcome to 2019!!!!

First week we gotta hit the internal staff with an EOC training exercise and of course finalizing plans for 2Q 2019.

Second week we hone our training plan with Illinois EMA, then swing by and talk comms stuff with the Red Cross Chicago Office. Also popping an easy ICS-400 course on Wednesday and Thursday.

Third week we got a double double special with two packed ICS-300 courses at the home office and tertiary care hospital. Then on Friday, we nail down the FEMA G0289: PIO Awareness course.

Fourth week I’ll be running a PIO workshop and PIO Tabletop. But also dying to hear the internal training update on our mass fatality workshop on Wednesday.

Fifth week, I’ll be popping the FEMA Region-5 COOP class at the office. COOP it baby!

Yar, its going to be busy January.
