Spending the day at FEMA Region-5 (Chicago).
If you were wondering, FEMA breaks the nation into 10 different regions.
Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois and Minnesota – the heart of Region-5 is Chicago! So basically I’ve been in Region-5 for several decades now – whoa!
Glad to see a few disaster faces I haven’t seen since Hurricane Irma. Hiya Katie!
Katie was part of our plans section in response to the direct hit Category 4 Hurricane Irma in Florida for Branch 5 Division A.
Happy Tuesday all!
Love seeing this video of a Dauphin flight at Oshkosh – thanks to the USCG Traverse City (MI) and Steve Kinevo.
The aircraft hum.
The start/lift sequence.
The pilot/crew challenge.
Not going to lie, I kinda miss being in a rotor wing aircraft now.
Made the news in Wisconsin.
Looks like I’m going to owe many many root beer floats when I get back to Ohio.
After a quick visit to the White House in July, I realized that August will also be a busy month.
Akron, Columbus, Wauseon, Wisconsin, then back to Columbus and then to Geneva.
So yes, all month I will be in FEMA Region-V.
If all goes well, September will include several trips to Region-III, but I’ll keep you posted.
Keep your head down peeps.
If you haven’t been to the Wisconsin capitol building in Madison, you should.
Very impressive building. I could have walked around that place for hours!
I know what you are thinking. At times, government can seem bleak, bland, or even boring. But I encourage you to look deeper into the history in many parts of this country.
You’d be surprised on what you could find. History is amazing.
Heck, they even had choir there for me….nice touch Wisconsin.
Beautiful, just beautiful.
