As we approach another anniversary of those tragic events that occurred on that fateful September morning 16 years ago, some of us might wonder how to best honor the memory of those we lost. For some, the intimate details of those hours and days are indelibly imprinted in our minds.
NJ-ACEP has created a program designed to honor the memory of those lost in 9/11, and make each one of us safer, more resilient. NJ-ACEP is proud of this initiative - created by long time NJ-ACEP member, Dr. James Pruden, who was one of the first physicians on the scene that tragic day, and remained on the scene for ten days.
The goal of SAFE CITIZENS DAY is to commit ourselves to being better citizens by teaching or learning the things that will potentially help us, our families, our friends and our neighbors survive the time of unexpected challenges. We urge every NJ-ACEP member to reach out to your hospital, your churches, your schools, your businesses and your community - and promote this day to accomplish any number of preparedness training programs.
We have compiled a lengthy list of ideas, but it is by no means a complete list. Whatever works for your communities is what you should undertake. CLICK HERE FOR IDEAS
