Day-2 of the new 2019 ICS-400 course! This morning, we start out talking about the deadly 2005 Hurricane Katrina/Rita response with the US Coast Guard.
Facilitated discussion allows our participants to openly discuss perceived issues. Lots of response actions from all of our participants that can contribute to a successful response. Glad we had fruitful discussion prior to the actual disaster.
Our class also acknowledged the national Emergency Alert System Test today for TV and radio.
Everyone in class knew about it…aka prepared leadership and pros. Love it!
Midmorning and afternoon class-time was spent on the capstone activity with heavy discussion on the use of area command and how we allocate resources for multiple jurisdictions.
And you are right if you said that the rotor wing options are high on the list of valuable recourses.
Channeling my best FEMA EMI Bob Ridgeway, “…and don’t worry sports fans” moment, we included the infamous State of Columbia!
This fictions town is always a disaster.
Great to see so many partners discuss overarching goals including challenges with the big three public safety providers. Like pros, they included a large bite into health intelligence, DoD assets, and of course addressing various audiences like the tribal nations. Solid!
Proud to serve my fellow public safety pros from all professions this week in the ICS-400 course.
