As I said in my banner intro, " I am so glad you are here! "  My name is Kim Laine Rozell, as of January 2019 I will be 60 years old.  This is my hobby website, giving me something to look forward to doing on a weekly basis.  Its my Blog if you will.  My goal is to share information that is useful to as wide a readership as possible.

As the webmaster of 1776.CLUB I seek freedom of useful information flow.  The freedom of thought, expression, ideas, and creativity.  Without freedom of creative expression, there is no creativity of science or technology, and no advancement for the betterment of mankind.

I am just getting started and hope to expand this website as far as possible for your enjoyment and entertainment.
I have had 3 minor heart attacks and now suffer from what is known as "Heart Failure."  That means I am retired.  So there are some days I can work on the site and others I can't.  We shall see where this leads in the volume of content.  At one time I was the main Webmaster for a community college when the Internet was still young. Maybe some of that will old talent will rub off on this website.  Who knows.

Governor’s Division of Emergency Management Letter of Acknowledgement

Letter of acknowledgement of my position of acting Regional Incident Commander of 2006 at the East Texas Council of Governments in the Homeland Security Department.

The letter thanks me for my part and leadership in writing the Hazard Mitigation Plans for 14 different counties in Texas, and the safety programs I work with and worked hard to get financed.

The ETCOG Long-Term Interoperability Strategic Plan for Communication Projects was developed by the ETCOG Long-Term Interoperability Work Group (LTI), recommended to the ETCOG planner, that was me, and then proposed to GDEM.

Homeland Security Task Force (HSTF) for approval and approved by ETCOG Executive Committee.

ETCOG was tasked with identifying interoperable communications needs, setting communications funding priorities, and making recommendations on needs, priorities, and funding allocations to HSTF.

In 2005, in response to a directive from the Governor's Division of Emergency Management that every Texas COG create a regional plan for achieving "Level 4" interoperability by January 2007, LTI created the ETCOG Long-Term Interoperability Plan. This plan was approved by the Governor's Office in January 2006. All member counties subsequently signed a ETCOG memorandum of understanding agreeing to abide by the terms of the LTI Plan.

TX Channels Plan
Meeting the Needs of First Responders

On April 11, 2007, in a news conference at the State Capitol, Governor Perry announced that Texas had achieved a (basic) Level 4 interoperability capability (which included the ETCOG Region.) This announcement was reaffirmed in the Texas State Preparedness Report, published in March 2008 by the Governor's Division of Emergency Management, as follows: "The state goal of achieving Level 4 tactical radio interoperability as defined in the TRCIP has been achieved in all 24 planning regions"
