Rising Star: Elizabeth Casale




When Hurricane Dean approached the Gulf Coast in August 2007, Casale volunteered herself and four
PacStar 5500 communication systems to help the
Texas National Guard. Once on-site, she learned the
mission had changed from providing a backup system
to being part of the communications infrastructure
for the Guard.

The new mission required that Casale train federal,
state and local government employees on how
to use the 5500s at locations throughout the state.
Working back-to-back shifts for three days, she
served as the communications point of contact
for the military units that were relying on the 5500s
to coordinate the evacuation plan and rescue
