The breakneck pace for everything Rod has to learn and everything the EMA has to do continues!
Rod has now completed the IS-100, IS-200, IS-230, IS-235, IS-240, IS-700, and IS-800. He is well on his way to attaining compliance with the National Incident Management System standards used for EMDs across our nation.
He has now attended his first Regional Homeland Security Oversight Committee meeting and is learning about the grant process and other intricacies of the RHSOC.
He is also officially official, having received his EMA uniforms! Pretty spiffy!
We have a couple more updates about our office going out soon, so stay tuned!
I became the Director of Camden County, MO Emergency Management Agency (EMA) in August 2021 after previously serving as the agency's Deputy Director for a year. As the Director, I manage the day-to-day operations of the EMA, work on the Local Emergency Operations Plan, manage the Facebook, Twitter, and website for the EMA, oversee the webpages for the Camden County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), provide oversight and run exercises for the Camden County, MO Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), and work with the Camden County, MO Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES). I hold a general class amateur radio license, call sign KE0LMY. I am also the official "Bee Keeper" of our mascot, Buzzer the Bee, who wants you to BEE Prepared!!!
I'm a certified CERT trainer and WebEOC trainer for the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency.
I maintain an EXTENSIVE and ever-growing list of credentials and train vigorously with first responder agencies, other EMAs, and with anyone I believe will help me become a better, more well-rounded emergency management director.
