Happy Aloha Friday everyone!
Happy Aloha Friday everyone!
I am honored to bring a brand new social media course out: FEMA/NDPTC Social Media Engagement Strategies
State of Colorado PIO Micki Trost welcoming all the participants in the class.
Great discussion on social media and how to increase engagement on various platforms including Slackk, Reddit, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat, Musicaly, SoundFile, and of course a few tips on how to have a corrrdinated approach to dissemination of information to external partners as well as internal employees. Remember, all internal employees (if they consent) could be brand ambassadors of their agency.
Active in class discussion as well as spirited activity in class w/ EOC and VOST teams can mutually benefit if both understand the needs and requests.
And also a VERY special shout out to the courses creator: Cheryl “HAZMAT MiniVan” Bledsoe. #famous
Stay safe peeps, it’s only Wednesday.
Engage on social media like a MoFo and always do good stuff.
“I love the smell of fresh EOC in the morning…”
January was fast paced but February 2017 is going to be lots more hustle too!
In the first week, its another great Basic Public Information Officer’s course and Joint Information Center course at Wayne Township Fire. Love me some Region-5 baby!
Second week, I’ll be leading the Incident Management Team Logistics Section Chief Course in Dayton – the home of Ohio Urban Search and Rescue Task Force-1 (OH-TF-01). Teaching FEMA EMI courses are super fun. Week long Logistics is AWESOME!
Third week, we will be back in Athens, Ohio bringing our Basic Public Information Officer’s course (G-290) and Joint Information Center course (G-291) with one of my favorite instructors Erica aka Mama PIO in Region-5 again!
Fourth week, I head back to Centennial to debut a brand new course for FEMA/NDPTC on social media. Looking forward to seeing my Colorado peeps again at the state Emergency Operations Center. Region 8 in the hizzouse!
Busy February! Hope to see you my classes!
Glad to be back at the State of Colorado Emergency Operations Center teaching.
More specifically, teaching the new advanced social media course: PER-344.
So many engaged peeps in this class…esp with such fun instructors!
Reporting live from Colorado…
Slight delayed as I was OCONUS – but December is here! December is here!
First week, I’ll be presenting at the 2016 County Engineers Association of Ohio’s Annual Winter Conference. I’ll then be on a special detail to the Blue Springs Police Department (Missouri). And then teaching some social media in Topeka for the State of Kansas Emergency Management. Region-7 baby!
Second week, I’ll be back at the State of Colorado’s Emergency Operations Center to teach the new FEMA/NDPTC social media tools and techniques course. Region-8 is great!
Third week, I’ll head down to Region-6 to Baton Rouge to teach another FEMA/NDPTC social media tools and techniques course.
And then the fourth week, I’ll be in southern Ohio teaching a detailed public information course and crisis communications workshop. Back in Region-5!
How did the holidays get SO busy?!?!
Be safe peeps!
Thanks to Colorado and my new Region-8 peeps!
I had a great time at the State Emergency Operations Center and look forward to seeing many of you in a disaster. Yeah, that sounds weird to say huh?
My first time in Region-8 = AWESOME.
Great tribute to Firefighters here at the State of Colorado Emergency Operations Center.
I like the mountains…I like the clear blue skies…
