It was a busy weekend, I did alot of errands and started to prepare for my overnight training.  I am going to go to a 2 day training with this organization. They basically rescue animals in a disaster and mobilize temporary shelter and will also go in after a disaster and get the animals out,  like with Katrina.  The training is being provided as part of my EOC (emergency operations center) training at work, and I plan on volunteering with the group afterwards. 

I do IT work, but since I work for a city in an executive position I get deployed as part of the EOC during any local disaster.
