#62 Sheriff Kory Honea - Lake Oroville Spillway Incident
3 days ago
In January 2017, Lake Oroville operated like thousands of other flood control and water storage facilities in the US. Surrounding public safety agencies enjoyed good relations. A county EOP and dam EAP existed. Telephone trees were regularly tested. Occasional table-tops took place. All seemed good... then the atypical happened. In this episode of the Complete EM Podcast, Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea walks us through the Lake Oroville Spillway Crisis and how mission focus, teamwork, careful listening, good divisions of labor and, at times, assertiveness all played a part in response. He also makes an important reference to one of our favorite concepts: incident playbooks!
