Hello Wednesday! Getting a chance to teach my favorite advanced class – PER-344: Social Media Tools and Techniques at the State of New Mexico Department of Public Health.
The engaging in-class activity in the afternoon is a great way to get you to think outside of the box…
…and force you to #totes enhance your social media game.
So happy to see numerous peeps attending today’s class.
This course is also very valuable to support upcoming Full Scale Exercise Vigilant Guard with the National Guard too.
It’s full scale exercise time…who’s excited?
********This is only training – only a planned drill********
Wait, doesn’t everyone hang out at the airport on Saturdays?
Spending a bunch of time in NW Ohio with several emergency services agencies focused in on Water/Ice Rescue.
Did some GPS coordinate work, observation and recon work, and of course some grid search pattern work.
A few of my peeps testing their newly acquired National Incident Management System (NIMS) Incident Command System (ICS) concepts.
Had a chance to interact with a few of the NW Ohio water rescue resources as well as a few aeromedical agencies too.
I’m glad to see so many willing all-hazards participants involved in this exercise.
Also glad to see local and regional law enforcement participation in the day’s events too.
Despite relatively colder temps, all crews managed to say jovial and warm.
Thanks again to my cadre of ICS Subject Matter Experts in Operations, Logistics, Public Information, Communications, and Air Operations who assisted today with evaluation.
