Dale Austin, EEB’s photographer, spent April 22 – 27, 2012 at the American Red Cross National Headquarters in Washington, D.C. attending the Emergency Program Management Institute.
“It was a week of long days being briefed on policy initiatives, technology advances, and team building exercise,” Austin said. “Networking with peers from the United States, Virgin Islands, and Guam as well as meeting legends in the field of disaster response and touring the Disaster Operations Center rounded out a week of personal professional development. Skills and connections made this week will advance the local chapter's capacity for preparedness and response.”
