Patrick is the President and Founder of BLUELINE Security Consulting Group, LLC which provides Physical Security Assessments, Emergency Management and Specialized Training Services to clients looking to protect their people, property and reputations.

The REDI for Emergencies software program was initially developed in 1997 in collaboration with the National League of Cities Risk Information Sharing Consortium. Under the leadership of John McNall the program has evolved into an online solution for Emergency Management Planning.


The original development team sought to solve a big problem for educational organizations in coordinating with outside Public Safety agencies. While it was not required at the time, the team chose the Incident Command System (ICS) as the best vehicle for that coordination.


Since then, ICS has become a mandate under the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the software continues to facilitate best practices today while the web-based program continues to allow users to take control of their planning process.
