Morning briefing in the EOC with the State of Illinois USAR TaskForce-1.
Special thanks to OTFPD Chief Ralph DeLucca on providing information on their response as well as their resources.
It is imperative that Emergency Managers continually learn about teams and resources from their jurisdictions. In crisis, there will be no time to forge these relationships. Your interactions will be judged on how seamless your operations and rollout goes.
Experience will show itself in seconds. In order to call the shots, you have to talk the talk and have to have walked the walk.
Trust me, people are watching.
