Day-2 of the FEMA EOC Management & Operations course here at DuPage County OHSEM.
Bonus points, I got to introduce our new Ops Chief to everyone today. Welcome Joe Jones!
We also talked a bunch about responder safety and how to bring a few moments of zen to the pros working your EOC. I think these comfort/therapy dogs are the best.
Timely post from FEMA on the work these dogs do for responders.
Trust me, they were a very welcome sight in the midst of chaos of a national disaster.
Glad to have so many pros from across Illinois for attending our class.
And yes, without a doubt, it is #AlohaFriday.
Day-2 of the FEMA All-Hazards NIMS ICS Incident Management Team (IMT) Logistics Section Chief (LSC) Course.
