How in the heck is it already January 2020?!?!? Lordy!
First full week, we roll out the second week of the FEMA Basic Academy. Additionally, we pop a special ICS-300 for FEMA at FEMA Region 5. Double booking is fun right?
Second week we are projecting our 2020/2021 plans and logistically trying to figure out how to pop our core classes for 2021.
Third week another PIO class in Lake County Ohio! #ESF15
Fourth week was planned for the IMT PIO TtT however, since I was the only Type–1 participant that qualified for the course, EMI decided to cancel the class. #booooooooo. Oh well, hope to catch the next one.
After a disappointing 2019, hoping to push a bit harder on 2020.
At this time, 2020 looks like a busy year. Hope to see you on the road.
December is always busy but let’s start the new year right – hello to January 2018!
In the first week, it’s paperwork and TPS reports to the max. As usual, we have yearly update classes that needs to be completed and mandatory inservice training. Fun stuff. 🤢
Second week, I’ll be headed to FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute! I better pick out my favorite ties. Hope to see many of you on campus.
Hold on to your hats because in the third week, I’ll be teaching the exciting ICS-400: Advanced ICS for Command and General Staff – complex incidents. I know you want in.
And the fourth week, I head far west to present Irma/Maria lessons learned with leaders in the disaster recovery industry and Emergency Management community (including Tim Manning) in a Response/Recovery conference.
Fourth week, I head back to St. Clair County Michigan to teach social media. If you remember, these are my peeps who participated in the big Cause IV experiment with the Department of Homeland Security Federal Emergency Management Agency, and Canada’s Public Safety on a cross-border full scale exercise in 2016. Excited to see my peeps again!
Hello 2015! After a nice 2014 holiday season, 2015 seems to be filling up fast.
First few weeks include special projects in with FEMA Region-9 and Region-5. In fact, next week I have to update a few friends at the White House (I better turn my spell Check on). Third and fourth week will be NIMS/ICS training in southern Ohio.
Sometime in January, I should complete my special commerce project for my Ohio peeps. All-hazards right?
Happy New Year everyone – wishing you a prosperous 2015!
