Last night, the Palo Alto-Stanford Citizen Corps Council honored our work with a Community Partner Award. During the award ceremony, Ken Dueker, Director of the Palo Alto Office of Emergency Services, praised our emerging program saying that, “we think this is very promising and has tremendous potential.” (Or words to that effect—I’ll get an exact quote from him later.)
A number of people were intrigued by the brief description and have asked to hear more about it. I’ll be following up with Palo Alto Mayor Liz Kniss, Louis Morrone from Marc Berman’s office (State Assemblymember), and Brian Sherin, Chief Operating Officer at the Stanford Linear Accelerator, among others.
We were very honored to be put in the same class as the other honorees:
- US Health and Human Services, Disaster Medical Assistance Team, CA-6
- Ce Ci Kettendorf: Block Preparedness Coordinator (BPC)
- John Mori: Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
Thanks to the Palo Alto Emergency Service Volunteers and the Office of Emergency Services who have been critical to getting us this far:

Thanks to everyone who has gotten us this far. I am deeply honored and encouraged to have our work so well recognized at this early stage.
