Glad to see July is here and look what new equipment came in today:
Looking forward to doing some work with my Vanguard MK-1 gloves.
Initial observation – these Vanguard gloves are super soft!
Shout out to the team Nick, Andy, and Ryan!
I’m no genius, but if your fireworks say this…
…then you likely could get hurt. So please PLEASE be careful this 4th of July holiday.
Also, fireworks are expensive. Leave it to the pros.
Here’s a quick news story with my friend Euclid Fire Capt Jay Northup on the dangers of fireworks who was injured a few months ago in NE Ohio. (click on the picture)
Again, I would highly recommend that you leave the fireworks to the pros.
Don’t forget to say outloud when it happens #PullRightForLights
Maybe consider using this FREE graphic for your campaigns too.
Sooooo, is this like a winter condom for your fire hydrant?
Glow in the dark reflective so you can find it better in the dark!!!
I love the extra effort people make to support their local fire department.
Got a chance to swing by Amazon Day-1 to say hi to a few friends.
Hitting it hard to provide for the residents of the Florida Keys – our team readies the third Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) in Islamorada.
Also glad to see the new recruit class working hard too.
Second and final day of our Ohio EMA Emergency Planning course!
We are going to dive deep into CPG-101 and talk about how we can increase our ability to write better EOP base plans and enhance our annexes.
All four groups firing all the way as they work through challenges in formulation of SMEs for plans.
Dynamic chatter esp focusing in on American Red Cross and Emergency Management when it comes to bringing people to the table.
Dove deep into how CPG101 applies, incorporating the NRF, lots on NIMS compliance, and of course ICS requirements. Discussion also lead to a few case studies including Hurricane Jacob Cat-5 to Cat-2 hit.
Also fortunate to have key players from CERT, HAM, EM, and law enforcement at the table discussing challenges with paid vs volunteer staffing and accounting for resources.
I want to give a major shoutout to Alicen and Tim for their hospitality this week for the Ohio EMA G-235 course. Most gracious and hospitable course coordinators.
Now go forth and formulate good EOPs!
