Day-2 of FEMA’s ICS-300

Day-2 of the ICS-300 and we already have people writing on the walls. 😳

OK, just kidding. The walls here were made to be written on as we allow our participants to collaborate with others. The wall makes it easier to draw and share ideas (including resource requests) that are needed to help response and recovery.

Glad to share so many ideas with a very diverse group of peeps here this week.

One of the participants just said that I act more FCO than PIO. 😂

Lead FEMA Instructor this week for ICS-300

This week, I get to be the lead FEMA Instructor for ICS-300: Intermediate ICS for Expanding Incidents.

I glanced at the roster and it is PACKED with high level peeps in this course including three Chiefs of Staffs, two Chiefs, and two External Affairs peeps, and one Director. Whoa Nellie!

I better not screw this up.

Snow happens…so clean it off!

Alright, I gotta say….STOP IT. Stop driving around with just one partial front window cleaned.

People, I get that it snows. It’s February. Snow happens. However, that does not mean you get to be a jerk.

OMG – CLEAN YOUR ENTIRE WINDOW OFF!

Don’t clean one part or a small portal, clean the entire windshield and ALL windows of your vehicle.

Common sense right?

Look, let’s all use good judgement this winter and get home safely.

#Winter driving tip: Clean your entire windshield and all windows before driving anywhere. Safety is definitely worth seeing. 💯 🚙 🚗 #ILWx #ChicagoWx

Your welcome.

Don’t @ me.
