Has it been this long?

Man … I didn’t realize I had been so busy until I looked and saw that my last post was for TEMC 2018. Since then a ton has changed. TDEM is becoming an agency under the TAMUS umbrella Sept 1st 2019 officially, and the move that such a split from a great organization like Texas DPS entails is large and complex.

I intend to keep this more up to date as I discuss what’s going on in the word of Operations Technology for Emergency Management. I have been learning that some of the things that we do are trend setting, such as ETN for evacuation/sheltering/transport/repopulation, and we are also set to deploy a portal soon.

Stay tuned for more information. I intend to keep this up and do at least a weekly post with all of the new things that are happening. Keep this in mind: Jurisdictional ID, and how it will morph for preparedness and response needs to a different defined capability for recovery and mitigation. 🙂


Finally Have My Site Back Up

Just wanting to let everyone know that my blog about Emergency Management Technology and those sorts of things is back up. Long story short, had a nice conflict within the database stemming from importing many many moons ago that precluded an easy fix when I added a couple of cool plugins back in September. Ended up just starting fresh. Trying to post to see if it hits my FB, Twitter, LinkedIn and other feeds automatically.

and now back to the regularly scheduled blog …

After starting my site back in 1998, my wonderful database of older posts had bad messages that I didn’t think about when upgrading that database since I had migrated to wordpress years ago.

Yeah, big mistake. Indeed, Smithers, it mucked things up I am too lazy to fix it. So as it stands, you get this new empty blog that I will fill up with stuff in the future.

But for now, nothing. 🙂
