We had our first meeting of the exercise planning team for 2017 on February 12th at Oak restaurant on Beacon Hill. Thanks to those who attended. We had some productive discussions and good ideas came out of it.

We have a lot of work to do before the April 29th drill. Check out the full notes here:

Next meeting will be March 12th at 13:00. RSVP to Jessica, jsroder @ gmail.com for directions or if you want to volunteer for any of the activities in the attached notes. I’ll also be putting together an exercise survey to get feedback on what you want to see during our drills. Look for that link in the next week or so.

Our ACS and MST Holiday Luncheon and Meeting was a Good Experience

annualmeetingThank You to all who joined us for a special Holiday meeting of the Medical Services and ACS Teams.

Our meeting was held on Saturday December 10th 11:00 am until 1:30 pm at the  Discovery Park Environmental Learning Center. During our Annual Meeting and Holiday celebration, we highlighted some of our teams’ accomplishments this past year.

Barb Graf, Director of Seattle’s Office of Emergency Management gave a very nice synopsis of her appreciation and praise, she also reminded us of our value in supporting Emergency and Special Event Operations for the City.

Our Guest Speaker was Robert Montaque, Shift Supervisor for the City’s 911/Police Dispatch Center.  Rob explained what happens when we make a call to 9-1-1 in the city of Seattle, how calls are processed and how calls are dispatched and resources are allocated.  He also discussed some new developments in the system, and answered some technical questions.

A hearty and bountiful lunch was provided for all who attended…

Happy Holidays from the leadership of MST and ACS
