Tom was the Deputy CIO/Deputy Director, IT Public Safety at the City of Houston, Chair of the Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC) of FirstNet, member of SAFECOM, and former Chair of NPSTC's Technology and Broadband Committee. He was a recipient of the Richard DeMello Award which is presented each year to one individual in public safety communications who has demonstrated the highest levels of personal and professional conduct and performance in the local, state, and national public safety communications arena.
Tom was a long-time participant of NPSTC and his presence will be greatly missed in our community. We benefited from knowing him, being challenged by his intellect, and enjoying his humor. We are all profoundly impacted by this loss. His contributions to public safety will be felt for decades.
