It’s National Preparedness Month – are you ready?
Written by Press Staff Writer   
Thursday, 10 September 2009 15:51

September marks the observance of National Preparedness Month and the Ohio Department of Public Safety (ODPS) is leading a statewide campaign with a diverse group of national, state and local partners to highlight the importance of emergency preparedness and to promote community involvement.

National Preparedness Month 2009 is focusing on changing perceptions about emergency preparedness to help Ohioans understand what it truly means to be Ready. Each week during National Preparedness Month, ODPS will be sending a press release or providing information on different areas of preparedness most likely to impact Ohioans.

In 2008, according to the State Fire Marshal’s Office, Ohio had more than 48,000 fires and 150 deaths as a result of fires, many of which could have been prevented. It is important to learn about fires and how your family will respond to a fire in order to protect yourself and your loved ones.

 
Holy Toledo — five begin new careers at seminary

Before she became the pastor at Faith Lutheran Church in South Toledo, Cindy Getzinger worked as a paralegal for 25 years.

“Different events happened, and the attorney I was with retired,” Getzinger recalled. “God was calling me into the ministry and I pursued it. It took me five years to do seminary. Usually it’s four. I started out at Winebrenner Seminary in Findlay. I did the slow-boat road.”

Eighteen years ago, Cindy Hansen was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, a form of inflammatory bowel disease that involves ongoing inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract.

“That was truly the reason I was able to go back to school,” Hansen said. “I had lost my job because of my illness. I went back to the University of Toledo and got my degree in social work, and I entered the seminary the following summer, in 2004.”

 
Environmental group to appeal lakeshore case

Calling it a “trifecta of injustice,” Trent Dougherty, attorney for the Ohio Environmental Council, said the OEC plans to appeal a decision by the 11th District Court of Appeals that said property owners along Ohio’s portion of Lake Erie own the land above the water’s edge and the land beneath the water is open to the public.

The ruling in August largely upholds a decision by the Lake County Common Pleas Court in 2007 that established a moving boundary.

Dougherty, who is also Legal Director of the OEC Environmental Law Center, said a point of law beside the public access issue is at stake in the case.

He said the appeals court’s ruling, in effect, deprives the office of attorney general of legal standing in the case.
