Leadership Emergency Management Session held January 6
The January session of Leadership Washington County was held at the Brenham Fireman’s Training Center. The class heard from Washington County Emergency Management Coordinator Bryan Ruemke, Washington County 9-1-1 Director Kristi Stamnes (LWC Class of 2018), and Assistant Fire Chief Brian Scheffer. While this session usually begins at the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) located downtown at the Brenham Fire Department, they were still able to see how emergency situations are communicated and executed by participating in a mock disaster drill.
The group rounded up that afternoon by hearing from EMS Director Kevin Deramus. He explained what EMS does, its history and how they transport and care for patients. Other paramedics came in and demonstrated the Lund Hospital Cardiac Arrest System (LUCAS) on a mannequin.
The class also participated in a leadership book review and discussed their plans for the class project, which will be revealed at a later date.
Leadership Washington County is one of the key programs of the Washington County Chamber designed to train and motivate leaders for this community. The next class will form in July. For more details or to view the application form, visit the “Leadership” page on www.BrenhamTexas.com.
