Founder WHCR's Emergency Broadcast Team and Bronx CERT Team Chief
Presented with JOHN D. SOLOMON AWARD by NYC CERT
On December 16, 2013, New York City Office of Emergency Management Commissioner Joseph Bruno presented Wali Abdun-Noor, a Bronx CERT Team Chief, with the fourth annual John D. Solomon NYC CERT Award for Exemplary Service in Emergency Preparedness Education. In 2011, Mayor Bloomberg and Commissioner Bruno introduced the award to honor the late John D. Solomon, an active member of his CERT team on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Solomon was dedicated to raising awareness of the need to prepare our families, neighbors, workplaces, and communities for all hazards. The John D. Solomon NYC CERT Award for Exemplary Service in Emergency Preparedness Education is presented annually to a CERT member who embodies John's enthusiasm for volunteerism and purposeful engagement to make their communities better prepared for emergencies. Members of the Solomon family joined Commissioner Bruno in presenting this year's award to CERT Team Chief Wali Abdun-Noor.
An active CERT member since 2006, Wali Abdun Noor is Team Chief for Bronx Community Board 6. He is very involved with emergency preparedness education across the South Bronx and Northern Manhattan. Working with the Manhattan Community Board 10S team, Wali helped to run a series of public service announcements about emergency preparedness on the radio station WHCR, 90.3 FM. He was also an organizer of the Harlem Emergency Summit, which brought together community leaders and residents in a day-long conference to discuss and promote emergency preparedness in September 2013.
