Mike Grimm, Emergency Management Coordinator

Mike Grimm serves as the Emergency Management Coordinator for BOEC. Mike holds an Associate’s Degree in Fire Protection Technology and a Bachelor’s Degree in Occupational Safety and Health. He began his career at BOEC in August of 2000 as a dispatcher. After going back to school to earn his Bachelor’s degree, Mike decided it was time to stop being reactive to 911 calls and more proactive in emergency response. He is happy working for the city to ensure that the dispatchers he has known and loved for so long are safe when they need help.

Mike has four children and a wife that he met working at 911, who is returning to work after 12 years of being a stay at home mom. Woodworking is his hobby and his way of melting away the stresses of the day.
