The evening was also a surprise celebration send off for previous Citizen Corps Program Manager Robert J. (Bob) George, who stepped down effective June 1, 2015. Delaware Emergency Management Director Turner, Director George Giles (City of Wilmington OEM), Director Colin Falkner (Dover OEM), and Emergency Coordinator Dave Carpenter (New Castle County OEM) presented Bob with certificates of appreciation for his twelve years as the Citizen Corps and CERT Program Manager. Marny also presented Bob with a personal gift and, at the conclusion of the game, a picture show was displayed on the Jumbo-Tron to commemorate Bob’s years of doing outreach for the State of Delaware.
Bob led Delaware Citizen Corps from a program that did not exist in Delaware in February 2004, to being honored by FEMA at the White House in September 2014 as the best State Citizen Corps Council in the Nation! We would like to wish him congratulations and the best of luck during his retirement.

Mr. Smi and Mr. Strouse focused their presentation on Earthquake Preparedness. Students participated in a thirty second FEMA approved Americas Prepare-A-Thon exercise, titled “Drop, Cover and Hold”. Mr. McLee’s presentation covered All Hazards, in which he introduced and showed our Disaster Preparedness DVD which covers: “Make an Emergency Plan, Make an Emergency Kit, Evacuation and Shelter in Place Procedures.” He gave the students, teachers and parents a 2G Lanyard/Travel Drive Combo, which was preloaded with a “Family Disaster Plan.” Participants were also given a “It’s a Disaster Booklet”, and a “Disaster Preparedness Pocket Guide” to take home and complete for their Family Disaster Plan. A copy of the DVD and a Citizen Corps Disaster Preparedness Kit was left for the school.
