Busy morning at FEMA HQ in Washington DC

Busy morning yesterday and today. Lots of preparation going on for Hurricane Harvey.


So many hard-working Emergency Management pros from FEMA are working the magic to support those in the path of Hurricane Harvey with coordination of resources for deployment.

Day-2 of IMT Incident Commander on integration and deployment bags

Lots to learn today with deep discussions on integration with various local, county, state, and Federal officials.


It’s acronym galore!

If you were wondering, that flow chart above makes perfect sense to me.

Morning was also spent on a huge discussion on deployment preparedness.


Trust me, I definitely got that part down.

Long day ahead tomorrow too including meetings with City of Columbus officials.
