UPDATE 3/12/20

After today’s (3/12/20) OKVOAD meeting, hearing COVID-19 related travel restrictions and meeting restrictions that various organizations have put into place to protect their employees and the public, I’m postponing the March 25-26 Disaster ESC training. HOWEVER— I’m going to distribute an online option for at least part of the training. Stay tuned!
