Training or Event Notice
From time to time an agency or organization will ask ODEMSA staff to post notice of an event or training opportunity. ODEMSA will use this format to post events (training or otherwise) that may or may not be sponsored by ODEMSA. The fact that ODEMSA is not sponsoring a program does not mean we don't endorse these programs. It simply means ODEMSA staff is not collecting registration information or fees, if fees are applicable.
