We proudly announce that Rick Diffendal, Communications Electronics LMR Field Technician, was awarded the EDMSSA Technician of the Year Award for 2019. Rick has been a valued and dedicated employee of Communications Electronics since 1987. We are fortunate to have Rick on our team and are grateful for this recognition from his peers.
Here is a selection from CE’s nomination:
“Rick was the lead Systems Technician responsible for planning and coordinating the installation and cutover of two dispatch centers in Cecil County Maryland. Rick’s careful planning, ability to solve complex technical problems to complete resolution, and attention to detail resulted in the county never losing operations from their old system during the new console installation process. Rick’s performance, technical knowledge, and ownership of all aspects of the project earned him praise by everyone associated with the project including the Cecil County Deputy Director, the Motorola Project Manager, and the Motorola engineer.
Hard work, attention to detail, and a positive “do whatever it takes” attitude is just part of Rick’s DNA. Rick’s constant professionalism, commitment to excellence, and the attention to detail earned him this nomination.“
