GIS Support Unit:
“Cobalt arrived the first day of the incident and was up and running in a timely manner. Ed Han, the Trailer Tech, was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and always available. Ed managed the nightly production run to be sure the numbers of prints were met, which took a burden off the GIS Staff. At the peak of the incident, map production was at an all time high and Cobalt’s equipment kept up with the demand. We were never short on time due to Cobalt Equipment and even when map production ran late into the early morning, Cobalt’s plotters kept up with the demand and never failed. The trailer was climate controlled, comfortable, and had a lot of space for 7 GIS to work. I highly recommend the Cobalt Type 1 GIS Trailer to an Incident Management Team.”

“Rob and the Cobalt Staff did an outstanding job of supporting not only those assigned to the incident, but IMT 1 and all cooperating agencies. The demands placed on Cobalt for copy service and GIS product was unprecedented. Cobalt stepped up BIG and DELIVERED! Rob always had a “we can do that attitude”. Cobalt contributed in a major way to the success of IMT 1.”

“Several times during our operation, Cobalt had to rise to the challenge of assembling and disassembling our camp due to situations beyond our control.

I would not hesitate to contact for services with this company in the event of another emergency, catastrophe disaster.”
