8Of f icerand Employee of the Year More than a dozen people were recognized for outstanding public service to the citizens of Cocoa and the Cocoa Police Department in a special awards ceremony held by Cocoa PD. Chief Mike Cantaloupe and members of the police department command staff, along with members of council and city leadership awarded Officer of the Year to Detective Debra Titkanich for her tireless and dedicated work seeking justice for victims of child abuse and sex crimes. The Employee of the Year award was presented to Charlene Jenkins-Catechis. Catehis is described as a true professional who keeps the department running “on all cylinders”. For more information on this event and the honorees, visit Red Cross Volunteers and Cocoa Fire Install Smoke Alarms In March, Cocoa Firefighters worked with the local American Red Cross and volunteers to install hundreds of smoke alarms in homes in the Broadmoor Acres community of Cocoa as part of the American Red Cross Home Fire Preparedness Campaign. This included educating the community on the maintenance, testing and replacement information on the alarms, as well as reviewing fire safety education with the community. In 2014, the American Red Cross released the Home Fire Preparedness Campaign, a nationwide effort to combine new technology and innovation with old-fashioned neighbor-to-neighbor outreach that is aimed at saving lives, reducing injury, and cutting down on needless loss. The Red Cross combined historical data on fire incidents with demographic risk factors, like poverty, to map those neighborhoods at greatest risk and teamed up with local organizations to install the smoke alarms. \"A huge thanks to the Cocoa Fire Department for coming out and joining forces with us. I would say this was a great day! If you saw what I saw, I think you would agree that this community was in desperate need. I saw lots of children, elderly, those with functional needs, and others that may have challenges getting out of a burning home. That’s why we try to maximize the precious little warning time that folks will have in the event of a fire,\" said Mike McElrath, Disaster Program Manager for the American Red Cross, Florida's Space Coast Chapter - Central Florida Region. Seven times a day, someone dies in a home fire in the United States. Every 40 minutes, an injury from a fire is reported. Nearly 1,000 times every day, fire departments are called to home fires. For the past 20 years, these numbers have been relatively stagnant. By mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors, the American Red Cross and coalition partners will attack that stagnation. (American Red Cross Disaster Cycle Services Job Tools - September 2014) For more information on the Home Fire Preparedness Campaign, you can reach the Florida's Space Coast Chapter - Central Florida Region of the American Red Cross at (321) 261-1523.
