Keep it safe peeps!
Did someone say home opener?
Hope everyone is working hard today.
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.
Glad to have so many pros with us in class…esp for #AlohaFriday – yeah baby!
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.
Proud to have so many different agencies represented.
Looking forward to working with each of these PIOs in a JIC!
Secret project this morning with lots of smiles…
Lots of holiday cheer…
All for this…
Ohhh yeah, the #MannequinChallenge
Outstanding work to all Cleveland public safety forces!
October was great but a busy November is here!
First week, I’ll be supporting the Cleveland PIOs during the 2016 World Series. Later in the week, I’ll be in southern Ohio teaching ICS-400 in Belmont County (Ohio).
Second week will be a few social media classes in SE Georgia who are still in recovery operations from Hurricane Matthew.
Third week will be all Arizona.
And then the Fourth week will some Thanksgiving fun.
Who’s excited for Turkey in November? Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
And for tonight’s World Series Game-6 Cubs vs Indians: #GoTribe #RallyTogether #Windians

It’s time to make magic happen #GoTribe
Reporting live from…well, you know…
Doing some Public Information Officer (PIO) stuff during the 2016 World Series was fun.
Like in any deployment, don’t forget to sign in, or else Jobu will chase you down!
Stadium was packed!
Don’t think it’s all glamour, PIOs spend gobs of time crafting specific messages tailored to each situation.
In the end, ESF-15 and all PIOs/PAOs are there to support all of our partners in public safety.
Looking forward to game-3 in Chicago.
This week doing PIO stuff with Cleveland Police Sgt Ciaccia.
You know…just working all the PIO magic tricks!
