THANK YOU EVERYBODY FOR BEING SO SUPPORTIVE. THIS HAS BEEN FUN SO FAR AND I HAVE NO INTENTION OF QUITTING NOW! WATCH FOR MORE RANTS AND RAVES!
Because of the content of many of my posts, I do not post my blog on FaceBook or Instagram. My targeted market is those that are in the arena of emergency management, homeland security, security, threat analysis, risk management, fire, law, border patrol, immigration and EMS along with those that wholeheartedly support those in the arena. You can find my blog posts on Linkedin both under my name and under EGWeiss & Associates. Please continue to share the posts that move you the most or you think are the most valuable to those in your network. Again, thank you all for the kind words and support.
If you are in Texas the week of May 30-June 1, come and see me in Fort Worth at the Texas Emergency Management Conference! Several of you have already made plans to get together that week and I am looking forward to seeing you all!
