For this response, I was not deployed to a field location but was working in the operations center. My job was to monitor all activities in the field and generate the briefing documents that went to management, headquarters, and other agencies. By having the big picture of all response efforts, I was also able to assist with operational decisions that were made at the local levels. This also meant that I took a lot of phone calls from worried residents, concerned business owners, curious reporters, and government representatives.

Were you deployed as well, Keith? If so, where? It is always fun to try and vizualize what people’s specific roles are in events like this.
