HBCUs: Why Not an HS\EM Curriculum


Please pass this message forward to our HBCUs.

The Emergency Management Institute (EMI), in partnership with the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (WHI-HBCU), is hosting the E390 Integrating Emergency Management Education into Your Institution By-Invitation. This course was formerly titled, "Emergency Management Planning, Preparedness, Training and Education for Colleges and Universities." The desired outcome and single focus of the new course is to achieve a more diverse population of emergency management (EM) professionals who reflect the communities in which they live and work.

This 2-day course is targeted for Historically Black Colleges and University (HBCU) Department Chairs of EM-related disciplines such as sociology, geography, public administration, or psychology. The primary goal of the workshop is to assist TCUs by providing information about EM and the benefits and resources available for integrating EM course offerings. It is an interactive workshop focused on creating an action plan to be applied within each participant’s academic department. Participants will discuss issues surrounding minority and minority-serving institutions of higher education and will begin the process of identifying and overcoming institutional roadblocks to increasing their schools’ EM-related offerings.

The course will be held on the campus of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Emergency Training Center (NETC) in Emmitsburg, Maryland – about 75 miles northwest of Washington, DC.

The course is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. on Thursday, September 27, and conclude at 5 p.m. on Friday, September 28,


DHS Employee Elected to Prominent Post in Prestigious National Organization


FRIDAY, JULY 27, 2012

-Posted by Public Affairs 


The Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Dr. Cedric Alexander, Federal Security Director at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, was recently elected 2nd Vice President to the National Organization for Black Law Enforcement (NOBLE). This is the first time a Department of Homeland Security employee has held this distinctive honor.

Dr. Alexander, who celebrates five years with TSA this September, is also a 10-year member of NOBLE. He was sworn in at NOBLE’s 36th Annual Conference and Exhibition in Little Rock, Arkansas. As a Federal Security Director with TSA, Dr. Alexander works in partnership with federal, state and local law enforcement partners to secure our nation’s transportation system. In his role as 2nd Vice President, Dr. Alexander will further his collaboration with the law enforcement community by working with NOBLE’s committees and initiatives to ensure the organization’s mission and objectives move forward.

“I am extremely honored to have been elected into this position,” said Dr. Alexander. “NOBLE is a tremendous organization with an expansive network of law enforcement and security professionals. I look forward to representing TSA in my new role.”

Founded in 1976, NOBLE’s 57 chapters and 4,000 members span across the nation and include members of the law enforcement and criminal justice communities. The organization’s mission is “to ensure equity in the administration of justice in the provision of public service to all communities, and to serve as the conscience of law enforcement by being committed to justice by action.”

Remember your Family and the legacy they've given you.

Dear Uncle Cook, or can I say Uncle Leroy now:

I shall always be thankful for the moments knowing you, and indirect teachings about family and community.  You have contributed so much to who I am as a son, a brother,  a man, a father, and a member of the community.

Thank you for taking in your two nephews, Dennis and I during the time of our family separation during our teenage years.  During those times pineapple upside down cake with vanilla ice cream were our favorite treats when we convinced Deborah to bake the cake.  

Memories of Sunday picnics in Rock Creek Park with all our Aunts and Uncles, and you as the leader of the pack are memories that always bring a smile and a wish for a hot dog, hamburger, and some potato salad

I shall always remember that slight smile you gave, and your asking when I would take you up flying.  I was more afraid of anything happening during the flight and family members getting upset with me if something happened then taking you on the flight.  I apologize for not scheduling your flight of the Bay Bridge or just to view the Chesapeake Bay to give you a view of how small this portion of the world is in the scheme of things. 

Who you are, what you've accomplished and achieved are a part of me that has contributed to my giving back to the community, to my family and to give to my children a legacy of our heritage of who we are.

Thank you for giving me the courage to return to my hometown, and contribute all my knowledge and experience to give back to the community.

Your loving nephew.

"I Care...." 

Leroy Cook and his wife Beatrice Cook vacationing in Hilton Hill South Carolina September 1985

(FAMILY PHOTO)

Neighbors will miss ‘mayor,’ friend

Leroy Cook, called “mayor” by Brentwood neighbors, picked up trash and offered food and cheer.

Every day for decades, Leroy Cook lifted himself from the plush, felt-covered living room armchair, his belly full from dinner, and grabbed a set of tongs from behind his front door. He would descend his home’s front steps and walk, five-gallon orange paint bucket in one hand, tongs in the other.

Down 15th Street NE. Up the alley behind his house. A turn onto 14th Street, then back around. When he returned, his bucket would be filled with discarded beer cans and shreds of paper.

Along the way, Cook would banter with his Brentwood neighbors. He offered them food and company. When people needed jobs, he helped them look. Cook — neighbors called him “mayor” — watched over his District community for more than 40 years.

In June, Cook died after he was hit by a dump truck. Family, co-workers and neighbors remembered him as someone who was always positive and never failed to make a new friend. They found his sudden death incomprehensible.

Cook was still working as a mail runner at Fort Myer Construction Co. at age 84 when he was killed — not because he needed the money, family members said, but because he enjoyed being around people. His lighthearted whistles and songs could often be heard in the company’s hallways.

“He was real,” said Beatrice Cook, his wife of 63 years. “He helped people, he loved his family, he was a hard worker.”

At about a quarter past 9 a.m. on June 19, a sunny Tuesday, police responded to a report that a man had been hit by a dump truck at the construction company’s asphalt plant on W Street NE. Cook was rushed to a hospital, where he died.

Police have termed Cook’s death an “industrial accident.” The incident is being investigated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which declined comment on the case.

“Our heart goes out to the family and close friends,” said Chris Kerns, general counsel for Fort Myer Construction. “He had a lot of close friends here at the company.”

Fort Myer officials said the truck was not owned by the company, but they declined further comment, citing company policy. Authorities have not named the driver or the company that owned the truck.
Beatrice Cook was chatting on the telephone the morning of June 19 when another call came in. She ignored it and continued with her conversation.

The call came again. It was her grandson, flustered that he hadn’t been able to reach her. Leroy Cook had been hit by a truck.

“That was the absolute worst day of my life, I swear,” she said.

Weeks later, Beatrice Cook thumbed through an expandable brown folder as about a dozen family members exchanged memories of the man nicknamed “Cookie.” They sat in chairs and sofas in her cozy living room, its walls dotted with family photographs.

She pulled out the glossy, four-page program the family gave guests at Leroy Cook’s June 29 funeral service. A picture on the front cover showed Leroy smiling, his left eyebrow cocked upwards. “Let the Life I lived — Speak for me,” a lyric from a gospel hymn, was written in black italic letters.


Family members remembered Cook as a man who always found a way to get his wife — and more than two dozen children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren — whatever they wanted, whether it was his son Victor’s first car, a ’57 Chevy station wagon; a chartered bus for a July 2006 family trip to Myrtle Beach, S.C.; a laptop for a grandchild; or just spare cash.

“He would save from one year to the next,” Beatrice Cook said.


Leroy Cook was the driving force behind the tight-knit clan, family said. He insisted on gathering for holidays and vacations, and on Saturdays he would drive with his son, daughter and grandson to a house in Thornburg, Va., that he hoped to turn into a family vacation home.

As family reminisced in the small, two-story brick house on the corner of 15th and Downing streets, friends drifted in to join the conversation. Valerie Blake­ney, 46, stood in the middle of the living room, hands clasped at her waist.

“Papa Cook told me how to hold a job down,” Blakeney said. “You gotta take care of your own self.”
Minutes later, Robert Redmond, 47, entered. He struggled to hold back tears as he spoke. Cook, he said, “wanted to uplift me” and helped him get his first job, in construction, in 1979.


Jessie McPhaul, 69, said the Cook house was always popular at Halloween because it had the most candy in the neighborhood.

Cook, she remembered, would buy fruit or corn, poke his head out of his front door and invite neighbors in to eat.

“Mr. Cook was the mayor of Downing Street,” said McPhaul said. “He cared for everyone he came in contact with. If he could help you, he would.”

Friends and relatives are trying to fill some of the voids left by Cook’s death. The family plans to restart work on the vacation home and make a return trip to Myrtle Beach. And Blakeney now walks her block, picking up trash and trying to keep her part of the neighborhood clean.

But Leroy Cook’s absence will nevertheless be felt, those who knew him say. “You ain’t gonna find another Mr. Cook,” Redmond said.

New Course in Response Planning for Functional Needs Populations in Rural Communities


RDPC
July 26, 2012

The RDPC is offering a New Course in Response Planning for Functional Needs Populations in Rural Communities

MGT 403 Response Planning for Functional Needs Populations in Rural Communities

According to the National Response Framework (NRFG), functional needs populations, as they relate to emergency response, includes groups such as the elderly and children, anyone with limited English proficiency, NRF looks to target populations that struggle to maintain independence before, during, and after the incident. These individuals require specialized care, transportation, shelter, and medical needs that must be considered before the crisis occurs.

MGT 403 Response Planning for Functional Needs Populations in Rural Communities is an eight-hour course is designed to educate participants on the planning efforts needed  to ensure the safety of those with functional needs, particularly those housed in assisted-living facilities and nursing homes during a crisis event. Because of their restrictions and gaps in community support,  individuals with functional needs living in rural areas are at greater risk of injury and death during a crisis event than those living in suburban and urban areas. These people require specialized care, transportation, shelter, and medical needs that must be considered before the crisis occurs. This tuition free course will expose participants to the benefits of developing comprehensive emergency response plans for those most vulnerable during a crisis — the elderly and children, anyone with limited English proficiency, people with disabilities, and anyone from a minority culture.
For more information on MGT 403 Response Planning for Functional Needs Populations in Rural Communities, go to http://www.ruraltraining.org/courses/mgt-405.

Prize Possession: Negro mother teaching children numbers and alphabet in home of sharecropper, Transylvania, Louisiana, January 1939. (January 1939)


BEMA Network members (All):

Recently I had the unique experience to pass along a  framed copy of the historical photo below to a young man that assisted me in moving furniture with his father’s permission.  This photo was prominent in my home and was practically the first thing to be noticed besides my black and white photos of Miles Davis, Billy Eckstein, Nat King Cole, and Paul Robeson (I’ve had this for over thirty-years).

I emphasized that we as a people are only one or two generations away from what this loving, proud, and wonderful woman is instilling in her children.  That knowledge, education, and patience are the basic framework to achieving our goals and objectives for ourselves, family, and community.

Study the entire photo, pass along to your children, grandchildren, and friends. 

Peace.
