Osage County Emergency Management schedules annual planning workshop

Osage County Emergency Management and Local Emergency Planning Committee will host a training and exercise planning workshop at 7 p.m. Aug. 24, 2017, at the Meyer Conference Room, Osage County Sheriff’s Department, 141 W. 14th St., Lyndon, Kan.

The focus of the workshop will be to provide participants the opportunity to develop a coordinated and comprehensive exercise and training calendar using the capabilities-based planning process to support the priorities and needs of all response partners within Osage County.

The workshop is designed to assess capabilities and preparedness levels of participating agencies, identify a cycle of exercises that increase in complexity to improve capabilities, and prepare a multi-year training and exercise calendar for 2018, 2019 and 2020. A multi-year training and exercise calendar uses a combination of exercises to accomplish program goals and objectives.

The workshop’s goal is to gain a clear picture of local agencies’ capabilities, resources, and level of training. The workshop will help each agency and the county identify training and exercise needs for the upcoming three years.

Participating agencies should notify Bryce Romine, Osage County emergency management director, of the number of expected participants by Aug. 22, 2017. For more information, contact Romine at 785-828-3323.
