Federal 100: Trent F. Randall

Name: Trent F. Randall
Title: Senior Solutions Architect
Agency: Department of the Interior

FireNet's faciliator. Because of his outside-the-box approach to mission-critical problems, Randall was asked to solve a long-standing challenge facing the interagency fire community: finding a way to enable critically needed collaboration and communication among a diverse group of stakeholders with differing credentialing, authentication and other information assurance requirements. The result is FireNet, a revolutionary cloud-based platform that gives dispatch centers and fire camps a single, secure point of access through which they can share information regardless of affiliation or agency. Today, FireNet supports federal agencies and will grow to include state, tribal and local governments in addition to volunteers and other firefighting partners.
