Emergency Response Train-The-Trainer class in Israel for Ruppin College

Well guys, it was a long 2 weeks, but this phase of the project is done.  I’m here teaching the basics of Emergency Response, in which we are talking about a Written Emergency Response Plan.  The class was made up of roughly 28 professors from 3 different college’s in Israel and we were delivering training specifically for natural gas.  However, I had to lay a foundation of general safety and emergency response before getting to the specifics of natural gas.

Some of them, living close to the Gaza strip, have there own ERP because of missile attacks.  Talking about safety and emergencies is highly different when members of your audience can tell you about there families ERP once their alarm on their phone goes off telling them they have a missile headed there way.

A big thanks to Noble Energy for allowing this to happen.

Train the Trainer in all things Safety and Emergency Response in the Middle East

Well, in just 2 days I fly to London, then Frankfurt, then over to the Middle East for a few weeks.  Wish me luck and hopefully I won’t catch Ebola and that IS won’t catch me.  If IS does get me, everyone go on Fox News and all the liberal media outlets and tell them that I love Obama (I can’t even say that with a straight face).  Never mind, go on Fox News and tell them I love George Bush (both of them) and we’ll see what happens.

I’ll be training about 30 collegiate professors in multiple aspects of safety and emergency response with a focus on natural gas specifics.  They will then be delivering my content to an eager workforce that doesn’t know much about natural gas.  I started things off very simply, with what is a hazard and end up talking about responding to a natural gas leak that can easily become an explosion.  Neat stuff, if memory serves, my modules have about a combined 14 hours of safety and emergency response goodness.  I’ll let you guys know how it goes and I’ll try to post pictures while I’m there.
