Call for nominations for the 2014 Rick Rescorla National Award for Resilience

Senator Tom Carper (D-Del.), Chairman of the US Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, has announced an open call for nominations for the 2014 Rick Rescorla National Award for Resilience, sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security. All nominations must be submitted by July 17th in order to be considered for this year’s award.

“In the face of a crisis, the leadership of one has the power to affect the lives of many,” said Chairman Carper. “The Rick Rescorla National Award for Resilience recognizes this exemplary leadership by an individual or organization, and serves to highlight the qualities of strength, resilience, and preparedness that all communities should exemplify during a catastrophe. This award is a reminder that we all have a role to play when a disaster strikes.”

The Rick Rescorla National Award for Resilience was created in 2012 in memory of Richard ‘Rick’ Rescorla, who, on September 11, 2001 led a massive evacuation of Morgan Stanley's 2,700-person workforce located in the South Tower of the World Trade Center, saving the lives of many of his coworkers.
