Honoring First Responders

I want to use this month’s post to honor the first responders in our community.  The systems we implement have many first responders: from the facilities manager, to the security staff, to the police and fire departments.  Today in this post I simply want to take a moment and say thank you to all of you that demonstrate bravery in the midst of fear.  I pray you get home safely each day and I am thankful that you come when we all need you.

On May 18th Seattle Rotary hosted the Seattle Fire Department’s Annual Awards ceremony and I had the privilege, along with my fellow Rotarian Ken Colling, retired CEO of Goodwill Seattle, to Day Chair the program.  We had the joy of meeting several of Seattle’s finest and of working alongside Chief Scoggins and his team in achieving the event.  We also had the honor of presenting the Rotary Service-Above-Self award to the team at Canlis.  This proved to be a very poignant moment that brought into focus how much our first responders mean to all of us.

As Brian Canlis took the award and the podium, accepting the award for the Canlis team’s efforts to feed the professional first responders, our fire and police department members and other city services that were on scene for more than 12 hours,he opened with:

“Thank God you did”….. as he said it, tears in his eyes and few dry eyes nearby (including my own), it struck home to me how grateful I am that there are those that run into the burning building, or toward the gunshots, that work 24/7/365 to protect our property and our wellbeing.
Make it a great day!

Emergency Phone Towers Coming Soon

Clover Park Technical College

Clover Park Technical College partnered with the college’s Associated Student Government to add another layer of security on campus with the purchase of emergency phone towers.

Seven safety blue light phone towers will be installed throughout the main campus by the end of June. An emergency wall-mounted phone with a camera and 911 call button will be installed at the South Hill Campus. The visibility and reliability of the phone towers enhance campus safety.

“When you’re doing emergency management, you build as many layers as you can,” said CPTC’s Budget and Compliance Officer Lisa Beach.

The light towers serve multiple purposes. An emergency light atop the tower flashes when activated to provide high visibility. Two call buttons on the tower connects callers directly to the Lakewood Police Department or campus security. Cameras will also be installed on or near all of the towers, and will allow security to view the majority of the parking lots, campus entrances and the towers.
