Islander completes Homeland Security course

Jamestown Parks and Recreation Director Bill Piva recently completed a two-day Homeland Security course entitled “Disaster Management for Public Services.”

The course brings together emergency management personnel, especially public works professionals, from within a jurisdiction, who would be required to prevent, manage or react to a natural, technological or civil disaster within their community.

The course covered the process of emergency response from preincident preparation and planning to post-incident recovery actions as well as focusing on the use of the Target Capabilities List as it applies to emergency planning.
