25. Check Your Credentials

As we approach year‘s end, Montgomery County ARES training last night reminded me that it‘s a good idea to look over your credentials to see if any are expiring soon.

My FCC licenses, driver‘s license, ARES ID and most others are OK, but my Clark County Emergency Management Agency identification expires on December 31st!

I have two weeks to go, but most of the Clark County EMA employees will be on vacation until after New Year‘s Day. So I may enter 2020 without a valid EMA ID.

As a reminder, winter may present some fine opportunities to complete any FEMA Independent Study courses that you have postponed due to lack of time. To find any desired IS courses, visit http://training.fema.gov/is
