TALLAHASSEE, FL -  DSI’s Chief Operating Officer Gary Yates reported that DSI continued to stay quite active in the recovery, training, and preparedness arenas in the first quarter of 2016. In addition to DSI’s ongoing staff augmentation for FDEM Recovery, Yates reported that DSI’s training and planning staffs were very productive in the quarter. Specifically, Yates reported the following DSI activities:

  • Holmes County Emergency Management – DSI tailored its Disaster Response and Recovery for EOC Staff for Holmes County and delivered it over the course of three days in late February.
  • DSI provided NIMS ICS 300 Training for Sumter County employees on March 3rd

Yates was also keen on discussing DSI’s delivery of a planning session on Improving Healthcare for Elders during Disasters that was delivered for the University of Texas on March 3, 2016. Yates said “DSI has been working to develop clients in the State of Texas and we expect that this successful presentation on behalf of the University of Texas will be the first of many DSI accomplishments to report upon from Texas.”
