October 2019 - Mike Olando, Fire Protection Officer
Mike Olando, Fire Protection Officer
I wish to extend my appreciation and congratulations to you on your nomination and selection as the Novi Public Safety Employee of the Month – October 2019. You were nominated because of your hard work and dedication in the research, acquisition, coordination of training, and fit testing of the Fire Department’s new Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA).
You diligently worked on this new and imperative project from inception, starting by gathering surveys from your fellow officers. You then researched products, gathered quotes from distributors, and set up demonstrations of the products for testing and evaluation. You ultimately worked with MSA Safety Incorporated to obtain pricing and equipment options for the necessary equipment. Additionally, you coordinated training and fit testing for the SCBA equipment for the fire department personnel. Captain Todd Seog is quoted as saying, “Thanks to Mike's efforts the Novi Fire Department now has one of the best pieces of equipment at our disposal.”
Mike, thank you for your efforts in updating lifesaving equipment within the Fire Department. Your commitment to ensuring the agency is outfitted with the most up to date technology, along with your dedication to the Novi Fire Department aligns with the highest standards and expectations of the Novi Public Safety Team. All the men and women of the Novi Police and Fire Departments congratulate you on being named Public Safety Employee of the Month – October 2019.
