"A mystery or problem is symbolized by the blue cloud. The superimposed Roman vaulted arch, one of the strongest structures ever designed, represents our physical world or more specifically, the Emergency Operation Center. Antennas disguised in the background refer to the human spirit which reaches out to communicate or to assist those in need. The ambiguity of this painting signifies unending preparedness for the unseen."
