Michael Campbell is one of our garrison fire inspectors, who also serves on our crisis action team. Campbell is our installation go-to person when it comes to painting a common operating picture for our first responders. He carefully and deliberately consolidates daily updates into a single product that feeds our incident management systems. The result is a visual mapping for our first responders, enabling them to see an installation map with locations flagged that require COVID-19 precautions. His meticulous methods and attention to detail ensure our first responders have real time, secure data to view when an incident is dispatched so they can stay safe and pre-plan for occupancy, capacity and personal protective equipment precautions. Campbell is the finest example of a true hero of the battlefield.
Drill sergeant Hailey Falk, 35th Engineer Battalion, 1st Engineer Brigade, confidently owned the mission and spearheaded pick-up operations for incoming female One Station Unit Training Soldiers. On short notice and with a quick turnaround between Day zero and Day one activities, Falk ensured a safe and secure barracks environment and coordinated phone calls home to ensure families were aware of trainee arrivals. Falk communicated articulately and positively, informing loved ones their trainees were safe each day. We appreciate her hard work as she symbolizes people first in executing our mission.
