Michael Gurley joins the Oregon Office of Emergency Management (OEM) as the new 9-1-1 GIS Coordinator. Gurley comes to OEM from the Oregon Dept. of Revenue. He brings a broad range of experience in both the public and private sector, supporting local government programs, planning, and transportation projects.
“I’m excited to be joining a team that has a focused strategic objective in place,” said Gurley. I got the sense early on that the OEM team is motivated, dynamic, and complementary in skill set and responsibilities, and I am looking forward to being part of that.”
Gurley will take his prior skills in database, management, and analysis to work in the 9-1-1 program at OEM.
Gurley will focus on the coordination of GIS Data developers to ensure that national standards are followed to ensure that all geographic information is in correct formats for use in a next generation 9-1-1 environment.
