A City in Transit: Photo competition
through
Midstory team

This contest is open to amateur and professional photographers of all ages. Please post your photos on Instagram before July 27th, tag @midstorytoledo, and hashtags #midstorytoledo and #acityintransit, with a caption explaining the story behind the photo.

The theme of the photos/stories we are looking for is “IN TRANSIT”. To be “IN TRANSIT”, meaning in the middle of something. For Toledo, that could mean a city in the middle of rebuilding its identity.

The winners will have their photos exhibited in contemporary print at the gala x expo event (https://www.midstory.org/gala) as well as having their photos and stories featured in a Midstory series. We will have 100+ local companies & organizations participating in the event, and the mayor of Toledo is slated to give the keynote. Awards provided through our sponsors will be given to the winners ranging from gift cards to photography gear.

For more details, please visit our website: www.midstory.org/photo-competition

Toledo Infragard Tabletop Excercise

The Toledo Area Alliance of InfraGard is sponsoring a tabletop exercise and would like you to participate.

A tabletop exercise involves a diverse group of government and industry professionals in an informal setting, discussing a simulated situation. The intention of this type of exercise is to stimulate discussion of various issues regarding a hypothetical situation.

The information gathered can be used to assess plans, policies, and procedures or to assess types of systems needed to guide the prevention of, response to, and recovery from a defined event. Tabletop exercises are typically aimed at facilitating an understanding of concepts, identifying strengths and shortfalls, and/or achieving a change in attitude.

Participants are encouraged to discuss issues in depth and develop decisions through slow-paced problem solving rather than the rapid, spontaneous decision making that occurs under actual or simulated emergency conditions.
