August rushing in so fast that I almost forgot to give my details for the month.
First week, I’ll be teaching a packed ICS-300 class to local public safety professionals, county representatives, state officials, and Department of Defense / US Military assets. All in prep for an upcoming NSSE.
Second week, I will be facilitating the quarterly NorthEast Ohio Public Information Officers (NEO-PIO) Training at WKYC. Latter half of the week, I’ll be testing the Continuity of Operations (COOP) plan at the new Task Force’s Base of Operations (BOO). To paraphrase: COOPing at the BOO.
Third week, I will be attending a class on behalf of the State of Ohio based around Risk Analysis for Fusion Centers.
Fourth week, I will be teaching basic social media in Maryland and Delaware. Also likely to attend a few meetings in Washington DC at FEMA HQ too. Best behavior indeed!
The beginning of the fifth week, I will be working with Cleveland Police as we hit another law enforcement outreach campaign. Latter half of the week, I will be teaching the State of Ohio Emergency Management Agency’s G-290: Basic Public Information Officer course at Medina County EMA.
It’s already a busy 2 region month. Hope to see you out there!
May is out like trout and June has come in with a slew of activities as well as the 2017 NBA Finals!
First week I’ll be in Missouri teaching my favorite class – Social Media Tools & Techniques and a functional social media exercise in Columbus. Yes I know, that means I won’t be attending the 2017 UASI Conference in Buffalo. #Boooo. However, my free time will be spent at Game-3 and Game-4 of the 2017 NBA Championships. #GoCavs!!!!!
Second week I will be teaching the FEMA EMI Incident Management Team Plans Section Chief Course in Cincinnati. With so many members from USAR Ohio Task Force-1 (including Schulmann) attending, it’s going to be a fun class. Are you attending?
Third week I think I got blessed with the approval to take the IMT Incident Commanders course at the home EOC in Columbus. Lemme see if I can login this time (Password “JOSHUA”).
Fourth week will be doing some tactical training including quals. #pewpew
Honestly, I just hope to stay afloat this month.
Additionally, June 2017 will serve as the foundation month for the 2018 training schedule. Who’s ready for more classes?!?!?!?
