Will be used to
manage all VFW Post 8337 business, private-sector ICS training, conduct veteran' R&D
projects, and teach private sector emergency response testing
protocols. This site will house R&D files, white papers,
and pdf files.
This site will be
parked until further notice. I
recommend veterans who do not have access to the VFW web network use the
County Veteran Services Officer' site
and the National sites provided by their branch of service. Go to
for more information.
also a number of links to Door County Public sector sites in the blue
section at the top of this page. Veterans should become familiar with
each of these sites. They provide focused and critical HLS support.

Benefits from this project include:
To ensure a coordinated
response during the next terrorist attack,
natural or man-made disaster, pandemic, or large
scale community crisis, we adopted the Incident
Command System (ICS) to the private sector and
adopted NIMS as a private sector emergency
To improve communications we created a
network of public/private sector liaisons capable of 24/7
"closed-loop" secured communications, and flexible enough to
adjust to any and all unified command structures.
To better support public
sector first responders when the incident scope
overwhelms their ability to respond or incident
scope creep exhausts their response and recovery
assets, we created private sector supply lines
to reinforce both public sector personnel and
their response/recovery assets.
To reduce confusion and
improve communications during the next crisis,
we've improved private sector EOC and Staging
area floor plans, simplified private sector
incident plan writing, introduced GPS into
private sector logistics, established standard
claims settlement and claims adjusting
procedures for the private sector Incident
Command - Chief of Finance.
Last but not least; to ensure every
man, women, and child in the private sector is on-board before
the next terrorist attack, natural or man-made disaster,
pandemic, or large scale community crisis, we developed a series
of private sector "basic training" tutorials field tests to
benchmark the private sector's readiness to respond.

This web site was launched as part of a Department of Homeland
Security R&D project focused on building more effective and
efficient "public-to-private" partnerships in the war on
terrorism. To conform with HLS public sector' dictates, the
Incident Command System (ICS) was adopted as the incident
management system to be taught in the U.S. private sector and
NIMS terminology was adopted as the incident management
vocabulary. For this web site, Public sector law enforcement was
represented by Wisconsin's County Sheriffs and Sheriff's
associations, Wisconsin's Chiefs of Police and Chiefs of Police
associations. The Wisconsin National Guard and all US military
personnel mentored by Major General (Retired) Al Wilkening
appointed by Governor Jim Doyle to lead the States citizen and
volunteer emergency preparedness efforts and Brigadier General
Donald P. Dunbar, Adjutant General of Wisconsin (effective
9-1-07). General Dunbar is responsible for the federal and state
missions of the Wisconsin National Guard and the Wisconsin
Division of Emergency Government. He is also the governor's
Homeland Security Advisor and chairs the governor's Homeland
Security Council. Specific to this web site study only, public
sector emergency management was represented by public sector
personnel under the direction and control of Johnnie Smith the
Director of Wisconsin Emergency Management. That did includ all
Wisconsin Fire Chiefs and Emergency Metical Technicians (EMTs,)
hospital and Department of Health and Social service agencies
and their "professional" associations.
It is critically important to underscore that at no time did
this study judge or criticize the performance, training, or
dedication of an individual or department representing the
public sector. To avoid bias, all
public sector employees studied were given a coded number so
only by having access to our key-codes would researchers know
the identify if those being critiqued. In addition, this study
involved over 300 counties/parishes in the US so the impact Door
County's public sector statistically had on project conclusions
was negligible at best.
The "Private Sector" represented in the study included credit
unions belonging to WOCCU (The World Council of Credit Unions),
chartered volunteer organizations and their respective U.S.
State and Federal associations, US military veterans and their
chartered posts, and chartered U.S. State and Federal veteran'
From a world credit union standpoint, this study resulted in
the "International Credit Union Risk Management" performance
standards we teaching at
www.RMLearningCenter.com and the emergency response and
recovery protocols that will be taught through a "Basic
Training" program under development at
