On Wednesday August 1, I participated in a tabletop exercise in Landover, Maryland, with many County, State and Federal officials in addition to corporate employees and contractors. The exercise proved to be enlightening and informative to myself and once again demonstrated to me that you learn something new everyday. I was impressed by the participants knowledge and ability to adapt to constant change in an emergency situation.
The topic of media, social media and the role of the Public Information Officer was a topic throughout the exercise.
