Leading off another Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Ohio Emergency Management Agency (OEMA) G-0291: Joint Information System / Joint Information Center Planning for Tribal, State, and Local PIOs.
We have a few new additions to our class – who hail from across Ohio, West Virginia, and Virginia.
Glad to have so many pros with us in class…esp for #AlohaFriday – yeah baby!
PC: J. Beckett
Always an Aloha shirt on Fridays.
Lots of group work and discussion as everyone contributes information to better their communities.
It is helpful because our participants have diverse backgrounds.
Almost all Emergency Support Functions (ESFs) were represented.
This allowed us to have an in-depth discussion and think outside the box to solve various in class table top exercises.
Instructors we able to facilitate discussion among groups providing the opportunity to enhance their response with immediate communication strategies and tactics for emergency notification.
Also lots of discussion of the benefits and pitfalls of the JIC vs the JIS.
Additionally, the class wanted to see a few pictures from our Joint Information Center (JIC) during the 2016 RNC (2016 Republican National Convention).
We obliged and showed a few pictures.
Glad to have the chance to present before the PIOs from Athens County and beyond.
Special thanks to Dan in coordinating this training with Ohio Emergency Management Agency (OEMA) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Proud to have so many different agencies represented.
Looking forward to working with each of these PIOs in a JIC!
