Meet the Tablet Command team!
Van served the Stockton Fire Department from 1997 through 2014, when he retired as a Battalion Chief. Throughout his career, he was active in the development and delivery of Fire Service training with a focus on Urban Search and Rescue (US&R), and Emergency Planning and Management. Serving as a subject matter expert during the 2004 revision of the FIRESCOPE Operational System Description for US&R, and a member of the curriculum development team for the California US&R system, Van developed a global perspective related to the needs of the fire service. When initially exposed to Tablet Command, he was skeptical about the solution and relevance to the needs of his organization. As one of Tablet Command’s first Enterprise Users, his skepticism quickly became advocacy. Following his retirement, Van joined the Tablet Command team in a customer support/success role, and was appointed President and Chief Executive Officer by the Board in May of 2017.
