SOUTH DAYTONA, FL (April 7, 2000) - The Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International's Second Vice President Thera Bradshaw announced she is leaving her post as 9-1-1 executive director in Vancouver, Wash., for a new career challenge in the San Francisco Bay area.
Bradshaw, who has led the Clark Regional Communications Agency in Vancouver for the past 10 years, will begin her new job directing the Emergency Communications Department, City and County of San Francisco, April 24.San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown appointed Bradshaw to build and lead the new department, where she will be working closely with him and local police, fire and emergency medical service (EMS) professionals.
A graduate from the University of Washington, Oregon State University and the FBI Executive Command College, Bradshaw has a great deal of experience to head the San Francisco 9-1-1 operation.She served as president of the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) in 1995, president of APCO's Oregon chapter for two terms and chaired several of its committees.
Bradshaw's new directorship will, in some ways, mirror her past position in Vancouver.The 28-year veteran of public safety communications helped build and mold the Clark County agency into a professionally run organization with state-of-the-art equipment.The facility was built after voters passed a measure to finance a regional communications center.It would serve 42 county emergency service providers, including the sheriff's department, six police departments, all city fire departments and three EMS providers.
The situation is similar in the Bay area, where Bradshaw will be directing a new consolidated facility for police, fire and EMS.
