Pennsylvania Personnel Deploy in Advance of Hurricane Irma

first_imgPennsylvania Personnel Deploy in Advance of Hurricane Irma SHARE Email Facebook Twitter September 06, 2017center_img National Issues,  Press Release,  Public Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf announced that additional members of PA Task Force One, Urban Search and Rescue Task Force departed Philadelphia today, en route to Mobile, Alabama. The team will rendezvous there with team members who have been working in Texas for the past week and wait for federal orders to assist in the response to Hurricane Irma.“We don’t have a clear picture of where Irma will hit the United States, but from Alabama, they’ll be able to quickly report to wherever help is needed,” said Governor Wolf.Today’s deployment brings to 84 the total number of PA-TF1 US&R personnel who have been deployed on federal orders. It’s not known how long the deployment for Hurricane Irma will last.A team of eight personnel from the departments of Conservation and Natural Resources, and Corrections, and the PA Emergency Management Agency today left Harrisburg for Ft. Dix, New Jersey, where they will support the U.S. Forest Service at a logistics staging area. The team will help move commodities and resources as needed to Caribbean islands that have been impacted by Hurricane Irma. The deployment is expected to last up to two weeks.“Even with the personnel that have left Pennsylvania to aid other areas, we are confident that based on current models, we have sufficient resources to meet storm-related needs here within the state,” said PEMA Director Richard D. Flinn Jr. “We are watching this storm, and working closely with other state agencies and our federal and county partners, we will be ready to respond when the time comes.”Flinn said no matter what impact the storm might bring to Pennsylvania, it serves as a timely reminder for citizens to take steps to ensure their own preparedness. September is National Preparedness Month, and the redesigned ReadyPA website (formerly ReadyPA.org) has free downloadable family emergency plan templates and emergency kit checklists.last_img read more

Students organize march against racial profiling

first_imgA group of graduate students from the School of Social Work organized a march to mobilize the Los Angeles region for the passage of the End Racial Profiling Act of 2015, which is currently sitting in both houses of Congress.With about 100 people in attendance, the march started at USC Hybrid High and ended at the Federal Court Building in downtown Los Angeles.The goal of the march, which took place on April 19, was to create awareness for ERPA. Though some form of the act has been introduced to Congress since the Bush administration, the bill has never actually been up for a vote.“The End Racial Profiling Act of 2015 calls for a clear definition of racial discriminatory practices involving racial profiling at all levels,” said Omar Avila, a first-year graduate student studying social work and one of the main organizers of this movement, in an email to the Daily Trojan. “It also calls for federal prohibition of racial profiling, mandates collection of data involving racial biases, provides funding for retraining of officers, and most importantly, it holds law enforcement accountable.”The march featured a variety of speakers, including Cheryl Dorsey, a retired LAPD sergeant and other notable community members.“It grew from the classroom to the streets,” said Caitlin Freige, a first-year graduate student studying social work. “We wanted to be visible of what we were studying and researching [to be visible].”Avila said he and his team had set up tables at the end of the march to register people to vote so their voices could be heard. He said that the group formed a petition that they plan to send to members of Congress showing the mass support in favor of the legislation.Freige said this issue has always been passion of hers.“I grew up in Los Angeles in 1992 during the Los Angeles riots,” Freige said. “So I watched my dad leave and I wasn’t sure if he’s going to come home. I had first-hand experience with the civil unrest due to racial profiling and race-initiated violence in general.”The team is now working on a petition to present in front of Congress.According to Joseph DiMartino, a first-year graduate student of social work, the group is hoping to build support among students at USC to help get this act passed. He said the first step is to educate students about the bill and what it would actually do.“This whole idea of color blindness and not seeing that our diversity is almost a new form of racism and especially with law enforcement and them saying that there is no racial profiling happening is very skewed,” DiMartino said.Freige said she wants to see more students involved in this movement on campus.“We have a lot of great people here that could really [impact] this movement so I just want to see everyone out with us,” Freige said.Avila said he enjoyed seeing all the support during the march.“It was a good experience not only [to march] downtown, but [also] to see the support that people were giving us. Our next step is continuing to get signatures for our petition so we could [raise] more awareness,” Avila said.last_img read more
