Administrative Medals and Awards 2007


Designed and developed the new state-of-the-art Fire Department Operations Center (FDOC)


Bureau of Technology,
Development & Systems

Bureau of Facilities Management

The Department’s Operations Center (FDOC), located on the seventh floor of Fire Headquarters, is staffed continuously by Firefighters and EMS personnel, who perform a variety of functions--from emergency notification to logistical coordination. However, when built initially, Department managers could not envision the immense incident management requirements in a post-September 11, 2001, world.

David Litvin, Deputy Director of Computer Services, participated in the design/construction/management team, whose members completed a highly successful build-out of the FDOC. Additionally, he was the lead person, responsible for information technology design and implementing state-of-the-art technologies, delivering information from a wide variety of sources and methods.

Theresa Woods, Administrative Project Manager, was tasked as the Bureau of Facilities Management lead in the construction component of this important project. Ms. Woods was involved in all aspects of the new FDOC’s development, including design, lighting, audio-visual/technological components, furniture selection and construction.

Since becoming operational, the FDOC has become a critical asset in the daily operations of the Department and during large-scale incidents. FDOC personnel monitor the status of all FDNY resources, advise staff when resources are dispatched and provide critical information about buildings and the incident environment to Incident Commanders.

For their valued contributions to enhancing the FDOC in a post-9/11 world, David Litvin and Theresa Woods are presented with the Administration Medal.
