First full week will be the run up/prep for the busy month as we open up six new classes,
Second full week will be an ICS Forms course and an ICS-300 course. Additionally, I’ll be in Wisconsin for a few advanced social media courses and a bunch of presentations to help prep for the upcoming 2020 Democratic National Convention. And then ending a week with a Debris Management class at the home office. That’s right, I’m hosting a Debris Management class on Valentine’s Day.
Third week, we will be on official assignment for FEMA as I lead another ICS-300 course at the Center for Domestic Preparedness in Anniston, Alabama.
Fourth week, is the final planning week as we roll into an incredibly difficult March.
Looking forward to a busy month in Region 5 and 4.
First week will be a double serving of radio intraop comms training. However, we will be rolling out our first ICS-402: ICS for Executives/Senior Officials course. Looking forward to a diverse group of leaders from across the state.
Second week will be back-to-back ICS-400 courses as well as a PIO Awareness course on AlohaFriday.
Third week is another ICS-400 course with heavy focus on AAR/IP and resource coordination.
Fourth week we are rolling out the basic weather courses starting Monday and then Tuesday right into the FEMA Basic PIO Course with JIC/JIS class on Thursday.
Candidly speaking, February is really the calm before the storm. Wait till March 2019. Yikes.
Seems like January went on forever…but February is finally here!
In the first week, it’s all about preparedness in a few classes on Hazardous Weather in Region 4…which is timely as we all have been having challenges with weather this year. Hope to get a chance to meet up with the state director too.
Second week, I’ll be hitting the HSEEP hard as I pop another Homeland Security Exercise Evaluation Program class for Emergency Management. I am also hoping to attend my 2018 refresher weather class on Weather Spotter on Thursday too. Region-5 baby!
Third week in Region-3 cause I’ll be back at EMI for the Advanced PIO Class and the Master PIO Program. Will I be seeing you in my class?!?
And the fourth week, I head back to Summit County, Ohio to teach the Basic PIO course. That’s right – in a matter of three short weeks, I will have the Basic and Advanced and Master PIO Courses. Also looking forward to our quarterly training with news media at WOIO Channel 19/43 CBS affiliate. DM me for more deets.
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!
January was busy and February is going to be stacked too!
In the first week, I’ll be back doing some fire-rescue work between Ohio and New Jersey.
Second week, I’ll be headed to Georgia to review a new instructor candidate (I hope he does well).
Third week, I’m back in Ohio coordinating and planning for upcoming events.
And the fourth week, I will be heading to Oklahoma for a symposium. Big bosses will be there and likely I will meet the new Director of Individual and Community Preparedness at DHS/FEMA. Suit up!
Maybe March will be more calm.
Freakin February! Looks like a busy busy month!
First week I’ll be in Region-6 teaching in Texas.
Second week, I’ll be breaking it down in Region-4 at the 2015 International Disaster Conference & Expo in New Orleans.
Third week, we will swing back to Region-5 to O-H-I-O and teaching in Cincinnati, Columbus, Geneva, New Philadelphia, and Medina.
Throw in a Workshop with the FBI and my very first #Hackathon – February is going to be a crazy month.
