January 2021 Capitol Chaos

In this bonus episode I’ll share my observations as a former Planning Section Chief on the January 2021 U.S. Capitol Chaos. I share how Incident Management Teams (IMTs) and Public Safety agencies can take lessons from the tragic day and apply them to planning processes in the future.

On January 6, 2021 the U.S. Capitol was overrun. Six Americans died. My thought from the outside was, “What were their contingency plans?”

We are in trying times. Last summer we lost 19 Americans. This week we lost 6 more Americans. Our nation’s healing will not be easy, swift or smooth. Similarly, planning for special events in the days, months and years to come will prove difficult and threat levels will most likely remain high.

We must prevent another event like the January 2021 Capitol Chaos. Agencies having jurisdiction MUST insist on combined planning and resource coordination to help save lives.

Stay safe, wash your hands and Godspeed,

Kevin
