News from the BRACE Team

The Second Annual John D. Solomon Preparedness Award was  presented to the Be Ready Alliance Coordinating for Emergencies (BRACE)  for collaborative work as a team of nearly 500 disaster preparedness and response organizations, engaging in efforts that reach the business community, children and youth, under-served populations, faith-based organizations, first responders, and individuals with access and functional needs, and more. The John D. Solomon Preparedness Award is named for the late creator of the ground breaking blog, In Case of Emergency, Read Blog: A Citizen’s Eye View Of Public Preparedness.  John’s body of work was striking in its reporting, analysis, engagement and impact, in preparing the public, informing professionals, and effecting change in the public and private sectors. FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate once stated that he “set the standard for what it meant to be part of our nation's emergency management team.”
Greg Strader, Executive Director for BRACE was honored to accept the award on behalf of the Organization's partners at a White House ceremony on September 24th.  Award winners shared information about  their innovative and successful approaches to community preparedness with national emergency management leadership
