May 17-23, 2020, is the 46th annual National EMS Week. In 1974, President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week to celebrate EMS practitioners and the important work they do in our nation's communities. We appreciate the work our EMT's do every day, especially during the last few months as they have faced a new threat and continue to provide excellent pre-hospital care.

National Police Week May 10-16

This week, we honor Police Officers that have been killed in the line of duty. Their service, courage and sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Three hundred seven (307) names are being engraved on the walls of the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington, DC, adding to the nearly 22,000 killed in the line of duty already memorialized there. Seven of those are from Alabama:

Sgt. Wytasha Carter - EOW: Jan. 12, 2019
Ofc. Sean Tudor - EOW: Jan. 20, 2019
Ofc. William Buechner, Jr. - EOW: May 19, 2019
Dep. Jay Dailey - EOW: June 11, 2019
Det. Dornell Cousette - EOW: Sept. 16, 2019
Sheriff John "Big John" Williams, Sr. - EOW: Nov. 23, 2019
Agent Billy Clardy III - EOW: Dec. 6, 2019

Gentlemen: Job well done. Rest in peace, we’ll take the Watch from here. #nogreaterlove #wewillneverforget

Due to COVID-19, all of the in-person activities associated with National Police Week were canceled. However, law enforcement leaders, celebrities, U.S. officials, and American icons will still come together to pay tribute to our fallen in a live-streamed Candlelight Vigil at 7pm May 13th. The names of those 307 brave men and women will be read aloud in respect, honor, and remembrance.

Thank you Alabama National Guard for all your work recently assisting with disinfection of area facilities and now assisting with the installation of this critical equipment to aid in the ability to keep N95 masks usable.

After an ALNG team finished helping Battelle Memorial Institute install a new Critical Care Decontamination System (CCDS) in Birmingham, the operators took a few moments Friday to brief Guard leaders on the functions and capabilities they had brought to the state.

At no charge to healthcare facilities, the CCDS is able to decontaminate 80,000 N95 respirator masks per day and return them to the nurses, doctors, caregivers and first responders on the front lines of #COVID19. The usually single-use masks are a critical piece of PPE and this tool, installed by an Alabama National Guard crew, will help ensure our state's healthcare providers remain equipped for the fight. #TogetherAL #GuardItAL

Update: The siren is having some intermittent communications issues. We will have a specialist look into the issue. Like always, we ask that you not rely solely on the sirens for warnings, rather, have multiple means in which to receive warning notifications that also include various weather apps, our Everbridge notification system, NOAA weather radios, and others.

We have a siren tech working on the siren near Hoover Country Club and we will sound it once or twice to ensure it is repaired. It did not work during the 10am test today. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Happy Easter Sunday. Today is a day to keep a close eye on the weather. Unfortunately, all modes of severe weather are possible. Remember outdoor tornado sirens are meant to warn people outdoors. You may not hear the siren inside a building so it is important to have other ways to monitor the weather such as weather radios, TV, weather apps for your smartphone, etc.

We are here if you needs us!
