Autor: Zuzanna Derenda, studentka WIBC

On 27.08.2016r. our student of Civil Safety Engineering Faculty – Zuzanna Derenda - started the adventure with her monthly internship in the full of sun (and full of gators!) Florida. The internship was held at the Osceola County Emergency Management Center in the city of Kissimmee, USA. Undoubtedly, every day was full of different experiences, and in general the month was very intensive - from standard getting to know the structure and functioning of Crisis Management at the federal, state and local levels, ending with full adrenaline car chase with Sheriff to Orlando, participating in several operations in Animal Rescue, a trip to NASA Kennedy Space Center, taking part in few calls with Kissimmee Fire Department and strolling the prison corridors. On weekends she has spent time soaking up the sun on the Gulf of Mexico, exploring the amazing Walt Disney World and Universal Studios.

As she claims, this month has been so far the most adventurous and fruitful in experience month of her life. She brought with her not only the colorful magnets, but also a different perspective on her studies and future career, knowledge of the similarities and differences in the Polish and the American crisis emergency system, a lot of good energy, huge load of of experience and a head full of ideas.

Note from the student:

I wish to say colossal thank you to two big individuals – my wonderful boss – Stephen M. Watts for his dedication, wisdom and friendship and also to magnanimous Bill Peterson, who initiated IN-FIRE-NET program, which makes Polish students’ dreams come true!
