Chief Executive Officer

Introducing Sean Davis:

Meet Sean Davis, a remarkable individual whose career has been a testament to his unwavering commitment to public service and his unquenchable thirst for knowledge. With a career spanning nearly three decades, Sean’s journey from a 911 operator in Newport, AR, to his current role as the Chief Executive Officer is a remarkable story of dedication, relentless pursuit of excellence, and an unyielding passion for the safety and security of our nation.

Sean’s journey commenced in 1993 when he took on the role of a 911 operator in the charming town of Newport, AR. However, it was only the beginning of his ambitions. Inspired by his father’s legacy, he embarked on a journey of continuous learning, attending EMT school and subsequently enrolling at the Arkansas Fire Academy in the summer of 1996. His dedication knew no bounds, and in the winter of 1998, Sean proudly graduated from the Arkansas Police Academy, further expanding his skill set.

As a steadfast public servant, Sean continued to serve in small communities, all the while seizing every opportunity to enhance his knowledge and expertise. The pivotal events of September 11, 2001, galvanized him to attend the prestigious Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) in Anniston, AL, initially with the intention of taking just one class on Incident Command. Yet, the thirst for knowledge proved insatiable. Sean dove headfirst into the world of CDP, not only building a network of friends and acquaintances across the nation but also emerging as a recognized FEMA-certified National Instructor.

Sean’s journey didn’t stop at CDP. He sought out training opportunities at the Critical Training and Operations Center (CTOS) in Las Vegas and other locations throughout the nation. These experiences only served to ignite his passion for learning and preparedness further. His expertise spanned a wide range of critical areas, from HazMat and CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive) response to law enforcement and fire services.

Today, as the Chief Executive Officer of UADRT (United All-Hazards Disaster Response Team), Sean Davis continues to lead with a visionary mindset, driven by a steadfast commitment to safety. His extensive experience and unparalleled expertise are invaluable assets as he guides UADRT towards forging new connections, fostering friendships, and nurturing the same fervor for safeguarding our nation’s security in those who work alongside him.

Join us on Sean Davis’s journey of dedication, expertise, and unwavering passion for the security of our nation. Follow along as he continues to make a profound impact on the world of emergency preparedness and response
