Trust me when I say the world of Social Media Emergency Management is small…because today, I got a chance to chat w/ Shayne Sparagowski in Atlanta.
Shayne is an Emergency Manager out of the Atlanta-Fulton EMA in Georgia and like me, loves to talk about social media.
Hilariously, we talked more about Emergency Management specifically mass care/sheltering and a whole bunch about weather decision for large planned events. You know, typical Emergency Management talk huh?
Sounds like the spirit of Emergency Management is alive and well in Georgia as it was great to chat w/ Chayne!
Welcome to the first day of NIMS ICS Incident Management Team Incident Commander course!
Got a quick welcome from Ohio EMA Training & Exercise David Nunley.
Lots to discuss including responsibilities, leadership, and of course paperwork (ICS forms).
Great first day with participants from Ohio, New Mexico, Oregon, and Georgia with tons to digest in all the slides.
Another great day in Georgia talking about preparedness to various pros.
Special thanks to Glynn County (GA) EMA Director Jay Wiggins for hosting the class…
…and special thanks to Laura Ginn who coordinated efforts on behalf of everyone in City, County, and State of Georgia.
Glad to see so many participants here to learn but more importantly, share information and challenges and success stories they found within their community. Espically when it comes to senior care and supportive care – these issues need to be talked about openly and various members of family and staff need to be aware of challenges they may face when disaster strikes.
Aside from www.ready.gov program – there are a ton of other agencies to follow to ascertain great and trusted information.
