Shake, Rattle and Roll
Did you feel the great big earthquake yesterday Southern California? It was 'the big one'. 7.8 magnitude. No?
Then you, or your children, must not have participated in the Great Southern California Shake Out drill. Our agency participated and I got to learn all kinds of new stuff about first responders and disasters. Fun!?
One of the things I love about my job is that I never know what I'm going to learn next. There's always something new and I learned lots of new stuff yesterday. I have even more acronyms to add to the ever growing list. In fact, our new ESO commented on it yesterday. Everyone gets so used to referring to stuff by it's acronym we forget that someone new might not know what we are talking about. When I first started working at the fire department trying to remember everything gave me a headache. Anyway, one more first to cross off my list.
Now I get to look forward to seeing all the SoCal bloggers tomorrow. I can't wait. I'm sure we will all have lots to say and catch up. More on that later.
