Public Safety/Homeland Security Symposium

October 18, 2010

A small contingency of Purpose 1 students attended the first-ever Public Safety/Homeland Security symposium held on October 5, 2010, at the mid-town Hilton.

Emergency and Disaster Management (EDM) students: Fritz Clairvil, Maybelle Jadotte, Shafiq Munir attended, along with Professor Lorraine Motola, who was representing DOHMH. Two other students in attendance had this to say about the event:

“The future of public safety depends greatly on technological advancements in telecommunication”–-Ishoma John-Peters

The technologies of today bring the tools of empowerment into the hands and minds of those who use them. My lesson for the day.”—Richard Ricks

While at the symposium, the group met EDM alum, Milton Johnson, who shared that earning his advanced degree from MCNY was a life-changing experience. He explained that before graduate school he was a security guard at OEM, while it was under construction. Mr. Johnson quit to attend MCNY, and is now a Program Specialist/Emergency Planner at Westchester County OEM!
