Guest Speaker at April meeting

NALCO's April meeting was held at the Albany EOC. Our guest speaker was Karina Tindol, Community Engagement Specialist for the City of Albany. She talked about her efforts in Albany to encourage neighborhood groups to organize and get training through the CERT program, and then followed up by giving some personal preparedness tips to our members. We took advantage of the location to utilize our operating position at the Albany EOC as the net control station and trained a new net control operator.
