King County Office of Emergency Management
I was hired under an Urban Area Strategic Initiative grant to manage a $700,000 project equipping the King County Sheriff's Office Guardian One and Snohomish County Sheriff's Office helicopters with live-video downlink transmitters, and corresponding receivers at four regional emergency operations centers (Pierce Co., City of Seattle, King Co., and Snohomish Co.). I worked with over 30 individuals from at least a dozen organizations, and completed this project on-time and under budget, despite significant challenges regarding the cutting edge nature of this particular technology at the time.
I was additionally tasked with responsibility for the operational readiness of the then new $30 million dollar King County Emergency Coordination Center, which required regular testing and maintenance of the facilities extensive array of communications, audio/visual, IT and other technologies. I developed operational user materials and just-in-time training modules for ECC, and provided operational training to King County Office of Emergency Management staff and regional stakeholder representatives.
