Typical day at work is waking up and checking daily supply requests and workspace facilities requests and tracking them. In terms of a movement is when we are the most busy. We have to begin coordinating transportation and building rosters for all the gear or personnel leaving and setting up bigger picture movements. In the end when it all comes together from what we are trained to do it makes everything go smoothly and is a great experience.
