Already December 2018? Are you serious?!?!?

How in the world is it December already!

First week will be several NIMS/ICS courses for our County ESF-3 partners, few other Emergency Management courses for IL Region-9, and a Emergency Management/Health Department functional exercise w/ our CERT Teams for medication POD distribution.

Second week our office is hosting another FEMA G0289: PIO Awareness course and then a fun PIO Workshop at ABC7-Chicago on Friday.

Third week will be the FEMA G0290/G0291: Basic PIO Course and JIC/JIS course. Without a doubt a full class w/ wait list. Glad to finally nail this one for all of our partners in public safety, Cheers for Murray and Corey for championing this for everyone too.

Fourth week appears to be Christmas so likely yearly closeouts and wrap ups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yeowza. Honestly, I can’t believe 2019 is right around the corner.

A free app with preparedness info? #NatlPrep #EmergencyManagement

So many state emergency management agencies have apps that can help you prepare. Here’s a fine example of the @scemd app that has tons of #preparedness info on #hurricane #nuclear #winter #snow #thunderstorm #wildfire #flooding #thunder #tornado #safety

No matter what part of the country you reside or work, be better prepared with these kinds of free apps available to anyone.

#FREE #NATLPREP

So many free things you can do to better prepare yourself for an emergency or disaster.

Joining the team at DuPage County OHSEM

Glad to join the team at DuPage County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management leading the charge for training and exercises.

Many thanks to Director Snow and the entire team of pros at OHSEM.

Proud to be serving communities in NE Illinois and across this great country.

Stopping by DuPage County HSEM on #AlohaFriday

Not going to lie…I think DuPage County Homeland Security and Emergency Management has some of the neatest stuff.


Like legit old school Civil Defense stuff!

Fact: Did you know DuPage County used to have an underground impervious EOC bunker? Seriously just like the old War Games EOC “Crystal Palace”. Probably didn’t have a WOPR.


Great to briefly chat with DuPage County HSEM Director William Babyar too. Lots in common.

Special thanks to DuPage County HSEM PIO John Nebl for the grand tour and meetings.

Famous x2! @rusnivek + @SchaumburgNebl #AlohaFriday

Looking forward to supporting DuPage County operations.
