Tom Sullivan for Colorado

Tom Sullivan for Colorado

Today we memorialized Coach Dave Sanders, a victim of the Columbine massacre, for his courage and the legacy he has left behind. His daughters Angela and Coni Sanders were present today to witness the resolution. My thanks to everybody who helped put this resolution together and for Angela and Coni to coming today.

Here are my remarks from this morning:

"I have met many people these past several years and some I have gotten to know very well.

It may sound odd but I wish I had never gotten to know Coni Sanders, If she had never gotten to know me and likewise, me her, it would have meant that either her father Dave or my son Alex would still be alive today, maybe both.

That’s not how it is though. I’m so grateful for all the time I have spent with her. You see, I’m watching my future play out right here in front of me with each anniversary of Columbine.

The death of a loved one is supposed to be a private moment but both of us have had to share those moments in a very public way. I have a Mass card with the day my father died, and I raise a glass to honor him that day, Coni’s dad’s picture might be on TV or in the newspaper that day and she might be answering questions about how she feels throughout the day. I know it will never get easier.

I never got to meet Dave Sanders but it has been my experience that daughters tend to take on a lot of the attributes and character of their Fathers.

I have seen in Coni Sanders so much strength, compassion, empathy and determination that I am confident that those traits must have been handed down to her from her father, Without ever meeting him I know he was a great man and as another father, I know how proud he is of you.

I’m humbled today to have this chance to speak and thank you all for being here. I look forward to seeing the signs for the Dave Sanders Highway."

General information

Introduction to Homeland Security (HLS 1000) Monday 10 a.m. - 12:55 p.m. COURSE DESCRIPTION Students will focus on a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of homeland security, from an all hazards perspective; to include manmade, natural and technological disasters, as well as intentional threats of domestic and international terrorism, including weapons of mass destruction. Students will review the roles and responsibilities of government agencies, non-governmental organizations and individual citizens in homeland security. School Safety and Homeland Security (HLS 1001) Monday, 3 p.m. - 5:55 p.m. COURSE DESCRIPTION Students will focus on a specific set of skills to enhance security, preparation and response to acts of terrorism as well as the full range of natural, technological, and man-made disasters at educational facilities in their jurisdiction. Topics covered will include, school safety planning, strategies for safer schools, training, education, exercises, and the tools necessary to coordinate and facilitate a school safety program in an educational facility Homeland Security and First Responders (HLS 1002) Wednesday, 6 p.m. - 8:55 p.m. COURSE DESCRIPTION Students examine the unique role of the local first responder. Students identify the common elements of a disaster response and the roles of each first responder discipline in the response and recovery. Course emphasis is on the actions and procedures “at the scene” where decisions are made using the Incident Command System. Integrating Emergency Management and Homeland Security (HLS 1005) Monday, 4 p.m.-6:55 p.m. COURSE DESCRIPTION Students will focus on integration of emergency management & homeland security at the federal level and the impact of these changes at the state and local level. Students will look briefly at various focus areas in the emergency management field which should be examined by individuals entering the homeland security field of study. After a summary of each focus area, students will examine sources of detailed information including existing college courses, public domain reference materials, and online training available free of charge from the federal government. Students receive a board understanding of the emergency management discipline and the knowledge which must be brought forward to function effectively in the homeland security discipline. International Strategies in Homeland Security (HLS 1006) Thursday, 5 p.m. - 8:55 p.m. COURSE DESCRIPTION This course is designed to provide students with knowledge about security policies and analytical frameworks employed by other countries. Learning about the approaches of other countries is an important aspect of homeland security. Both the positive and negative practices of the U.S. and other nations will be studied to help students gain knowledge that can used to improve the strategic policies of US agencies charged with homeland security missions at the federal, state, and local levels. The course will also examine transnational threats that impact homeland security. *HLS 1000 is a prerequisite. Introduction to Defense Support and Civil Authorities (HLS 1020) Monday, 6 p.m. – 7:55 p.m. COURSE DESCRIPTION “All emergencies are local” however very often the military gets called in to assist locals with their response to disasters. Whether it’s active duty, National Guard, or Reserve forces, each brings with it a unique capability that can assist first responders in their response to the emergency. However, the military also plays a significant role in homeland defense for the United States. Very often, the military’s role is misconstrued because responders at the local level aren’t familiar with military terminology and capabilities. This course seeks to theoretically and analytically examine the role of the military in homeland defense and in supporting local responders during times of crisis. Proposed this spring: Level 1 Certificate of Achievement in Homeland Security (16 credits) Proposed courses for Fall 2011: • Introduction to Intelligence for Homeland Security • Terrorism Analysis
