For those that are planning on coming to the new center, please make sure that your minimum state requirements are met. There will be additional training required and right now we have identified that as EMD & CPR certification. As discussed in the last User Committee Meeting, we are working on training a trainer for both of those and as soon as we have that set up we will contact everyone and get that scheduled. We have identified required course you will need for the new center … NIMS/FEMA Incident Command System courses (ICS 100, 200, 700 and 800).
I’m finally through attending budget meetings for this year. I will start again in February. All entities have passed the budget for 2016-2017 for the ECC. Thank you to everyone one that participated.
I’m back on track and working my way around to the different shifts at the departments to meet/greet each one of you. I was at the Sheriff’s Department a couple of weeks ago. I’m schedule to meet HPD’s evening shift and mid nights next week. I will try to get to Portland and the others the week after that. I appreciate everyone’s patience’s.
We are braining storming on how to get everyone cross-trained and transitioned over to the new center. We may create a Information Dispatcher position.. still throwing this around. This position supports the dispatcher for anything the officers need or request, responsible for, running people thought TCIC/NCIC and TCIC/NCIC entries throughout the shift (missing persons, warrants and such).
Mike Cook advised that the bid for wiring was placed on the state web site last week. We had 8 companies attend the meeting for additional information this week.
The 911 ECD is working diligently on securing the furniture and the new CAD upgrade for the center.
So… I think that is all I have right not. Once I know information, I will send it out in the next newsletter.
I’m excited to be a part of this great opportunity and look forward to working with each one of you.
