In June 2009 PSHSB sent an outreach team, comprised of Shawn Lapinski, Director of Emergency Operations, Todd Mitchell, Outreach Specialist, and Robert Kenny, Director of Media Relations, to five Gulf Coast cities to meet with state, county and local public safety officials about public safety and emergency response communications issues. The team conducted site visits in Houston, TX; Baton Rouge, LA; Biloxi, MS; Mobile, AL; and Tallahassee, FL. Each of the visits included introductory meetings with public safety officials and tours of state or county emergency operations centers and 9-1-1 Call Centers, as well as area hospitals.
