- President’s Message - April 2020
I want to start by thanking you for being a valued member of PORAC during these uncertain times. I know everyone is working hard to keep their communities safe while also keeping themselves and their families healthy. Although the PORAC office is closed, we are working very hard on the state and federal level to make sure the working conditions and safety of all first responders and public safety officers are not left out of the equation as elected officials react to the coronavirus pandemic. Here are the top priorities we are working on: Requesting personal protective equipment (PPE), Priority testing for first responders, Making COVID-19 a workers’ compensation presumption, Major funding for equipment, personnel, compensation and other costs associated with COVID-19, When a vaccine becomes available, first responders are a priority
- Vice President’s Message - April 2020
March started like any other month for us at PORAC. Our staff was focused on their normal duties, but mostly on Symposium, which was approaching fast. It’s important to us at PORAC to provide our members with a meaningful experience, whether it’s at a training class or a larger event like Symposium or Conference. This year’s Symposium would have culminated in our first golf tournament, the POREF Open, benefiting the Peace Officers Relief & Education Fund. While at PORAC it was business as usual, President Marvel and I traveled to Washington, D.C., for our annual fly-in with the Executive Committee, ready to take our advocacy efforts to the nation’s capital.
- Treasurer’s Message - April 2020
I am writing my monthly article while we are in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. Many people are getting sick and some are dying. Families have been told to shelter in place. The stock market has tanked. Store shelves are empty. Congress is working to pass a stimulus package. Doctors are studying ways to treat patients. Scientists are working toward a cure. There are many questions in my mind. Will someone I know die from this? Will my family or I get sick? Will the economy recover? When will life return to normal? I hope that by the time you read this I will have discovered that all my family and friends have stayed safe, that a vaccine is on its way and that the stock market is on its way to a solid recovery.
