"This was one of a million cases where, who knows what could have happened if she hadn't been able to text. And if the boyfriend had known the police were on the way, he could have -- it could have turned out real tragically" Allen said
"As our Fourchon Ops Center was the main base for parish response in 2010, the Port Commission realized that there was a need for a facility where all response agencies, emergency services, industry leaders and incident managers could work collaboratively to manage any type of incident or disaster, and it needed to be separate from our daily operations base. Using our experience as a port that successfully morphed into a model in emergency response, we secured federal port security grant funds through the Department of Homeland Security and started planning the Fourchon EOC,” said GLPC Executive Director Chett Chiasson."
...successful thing that has come from this,” said Gualtieri of the new center, which processes 9-1-1 calls for fire, EMS and the sheriff’s office. "People can now pick up the phone today in Pinellas County and when they need police, fire, EMS they can request that from one person as opposed to having their call transferred potentially several times.”"
...topics of discussion and practice so they are prepared to engage as professional emergency managers and to lead in times of crises," Urby said. "Participating in an emergency operations center, as an incident commander, or as a member of a local planning committee, are just some of the few tasks for which our students are well prepared."
