Jim agreed and said he would put some thoughts down about and share them with the group in the next week or so.
Tom said he would be willing to work with Eilleen Richey (USFS /CIO project manager) to see if she could help him put together a “strawman” project plan based on Jim’s input.
The steering group members agreed that during the July 26-27 face-to-face meeting it would be very important to “nail down a common vision” that included:
What issues have the biggest impact on dispatch?
Identify priority issues that need resolution
What are we trying to fix?
Major strategies for addressing issues
Governance / Decision making process for IDIP Steering Committee
How does the IDIP steering committee turn a decision or recommendation into an action for implementation?
Don’t need more recommendations… need implementation.
Need to talk through multi-functional issues (e.g. NPS dispatch centers that address full range of responses from LEI to 911, structural fire, EMS, SAR, etc.
How are we going to deal with these types of issues?
Have a clear definition of what we are planning and how everything dovetails into a strategic vision.
Identify specific issues and recommendations for moving forward
