Tom Peterson, Aviation Emergency Coordinator, 206-949-1022
OLYMPIA – The goal is to provide a seamless, coordinated emergency response.
To do that, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) combined its Aviation Emergency Services with its Office of Emergency Management. The new Office of Emergency Management group will work from the WSDOT Headquarters Building on the Capitol Campus in Olympia.
The pairing allows WSDOT to build its emergency response and expertise in emergency planning, plus add more technical and communications support in the air and on the ground.
WSDOT’s Aviation Emergency Services manages the state’s air search-and-rescue operations and assists in disaster-relief efforts. Combining these services within the agency’s Office of Emergency Management brings together the state’s core emergency transportation, safety and security operations for a streamlined disaster response.
Tom Peterson, Aviation Emergency Coordinator, is now located in Olympia. He can be reached at 206-949-1022.
