From The Chief


Bill Burket, Director of MIRT & Emergency Operations

“Our task force responds to maritime events along the entire eastern half of the state. Swift response and in-depth communication are absolutely critical. It’s why we chose a Pierce Frontline Command Unit to serve as our mobile communications headquarters. It delivers the sophisticated audio, video and surveillance equipment we rely on to coordinate with multiple teams and make confident decisions.”
