If you don’t know what television looks like in black and white, you won’t get the “old-timers” joke – so give it up.

Anyway - next Thursday, September 8th – it’s a double header:

Event One:

Title: Tools to Develop & Use GIS Concept of Operations and SOGs in Your Public Safety Agency
Date: Thursday, September 8 (and 16)
Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00pm CDT

Cost: Free 

The National Alliance for Public Safety GIS Foundation, the National States Geographic Information Council, and the US Department of Homeland Security - are co-hosting a webcast training to provide public safety & emergency services personnel and GIS/IT professionals with training on how to use the DHS Geospatial Concept of Operations (GeoCONOPs) and NAPSG's Standard Operating Guidance to advance coordination with GIS in your public safety agency(s).  This event is open to State and local government and is seen as a potential tool to assist in geospatial coordination between all levels of government. 

Given the recent events this spring/summer (wild fires, tornadoes, earth quakes and hurricanes) we’d recommend that State GIS Coordinators, Emergency Managers and GIS professionals supporting Emergency Management/Homeland Security attend. 

Space is Limited - Be sure to Register as soon as possible to participate.  If this link doesn’t work, cut and paste the following:

Event Two:

Title: MnGeo Emergency Preparedness Committee Quarterly Meeting
Date: Thursday, September 8
Time: 2:00 pm - 4:30pm CDT

Cost: Free (I mean, really, who would pay for this?)

Details, including registration and online access information, can be found by using the appropriate link in the right sidebar, or by going here:  

Psssssssst:  If your boss won’t allow you to spend the entire afternoon sitting in on online events – my unbiased vote would be for event number “2”!
