Description

PIO obtains briefing from Incident Commander

The City of La Porte’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) will host a 2-day Public Information Officer / Joint Information Center (PIO/JIC) Training seminar on January 17-18, 2018.

Click the green "REGISTER" box to view details about each of the 4 training modules.

This “all-hazards” classroom training is recommended for all Incident Commanders, Public Information Officers, Joint Information Center staff, and Media Spokespersons for any local, state, federal agencies, NGO’s, schools, hospitals, and oil/petrochemical plants who would work together to respond to any emergency under the National Incident Management System (NIMS).

Training Location

This classroom training will be conducted in the Training Room of the La Porte Police Department at 3001 North 23rd Street in La Porte, TX 77571. A map is available on the online registration page. Each student receives a seminar workbook, handouts, pen and highlighter. Free coffee, juice and bottled water will also be provided, but lunch is on your own both days.

Online Registration

Register online at https://piojic.eventbrite.com using any major credit card. The deadline to register is 12 noon on Friday, January 12, 2018, but seating is limited to a maximum of 48 students who register on a "first-come, first-served" basis, so this seminar may sell out well before January 12. You can cancel your registration up to 7 days prior to the training and receive a full refund. Sorry, no refunds after 12 noon on Wednesday, January 10, 2018.
