Since Jeff Friedland is not one to toot his own horn, I thought I would toot it for him. I had the great pleasure of attending the State of Michigan interoperability Conference last week in Traverse City Michigan. It is always an honour to attend and speak at this conference and highlight the cross border work that we are doing with our cross border partners. Much to Jeff Friedland’s surprise, he was presented with an award for all the work he has done on interoperability and emergency management in his career. I cannot think of a more deserving person. Jeff has worked tirelessly for the people of not only St. Clair County but also the County of Lambton so it was great to see this work get recognized. Jeff, has helped make the border a little thinner and the cross-border communities closer. Jeff Friedland is retiring from his position the end of this week.
