This week, our office is hosting the FEMA All Hazards NIMS ICS Incident Management Team Logistics Section Chief course.
Welcome to our house.
You hanging with us this week?
I just demobilized from Hurricane Irma. Total of 42 days.
One thought as I repack: I have never worked so hard and had to use ALL my learned PIO skills and tricks in just one disaster.
Few hours to make the turnaround in Cleveland.
Now headed to support another DHS mission with the US and Canada.
Evoking the famous quote from Ray Stantz: “Oh, I got to get some sleep, I’m dying.”
FEMA Administrator Brock Long made a poignant statement about his employees today in the NY Times:
“…this is what we train for” – FEMA Administrator Brock Long

Yes sir, we train all the time.
Many instructors across this nation can attest the long hours we spend providing training for hundreds of thousands of our all-hazards public safety professionals from all walks of life.
This is truly what we train for.
Take a moment to remember those who gave their lives for our freedoms.
Third looks – my #Spectacles from SnapChat Part-3. This time, it’s about size.
Yep, you heard that right, it’s one size fits all.
Me? Well, I don’t exactly have a classic Caucasian face with a sharp nose and chiseled chin. But they sit kinda pinch the bridge of my nose. However, everyone wears their sunnies differently.
Tip-3: If you see someone wearing them in the wild, ask them to try it on.
(I also heard Shaq tried them on at CES this year too.)
BTW-no animals were harmed in the video.
More to come.
Sunday evening. Just doing some planning (get it?) for June.
Hope to see you in my class.
Say hello to the newest All-Hazards Incident Managment Team Logistics Section Chiefs!
