Past President Joseph Muhammad wanted to share this with the IABPFF Family
Subject: Announcement: Greenburgh Central School District (Mr. Dion Jamaal Bridgers)
An Announcement from the Superintendent
Dear Greenburgh Central School District Family,
As many of us are enjoying the spoils of the holiday season, it is with a heavy heart that I inform you of the loss of a beloved Greenburgh Central School District family member. Teaching Assistant, Mr. Dion Bridgers passed away Sunday, December 23, 2018. This gentle soul, Dion, was a cherished member of the Highview Elementary School family. With a warm side smile and soft-spoken voice, Dion touched the lives of so many GCSD children and their families.
Dion often greeted his friends and acquaintances with a soft-toned “Peace Queen” or “Peace King”...this greeting speaks to the great deal of respect and admiration he had for so many of us.
In my last lengthy conversation with Dion, he spoke about his desire to do more for the children of GCSD. He saw himself in so many of our students—especially our boys. He asked about pursuing other opportunities within GCSD because he believed he could have a greater impact on more children by expanding his innate talents for inspiring the youth. Although Dion did not get to pursue his desire here at GCSD, it is apparent that he had already inspired so many children [and their families] throughout the community. I, along with many others, witnessed children rely on this gentle giant for comfort, care and resolve.
Dion was a resident of Greenburgh. He leaves behind a beautiful wife, Taheera (Woodlands graduate), a young daughter, Blessing, and son, Lamar. Lamar is a recent graduate of Woodlands Middle High School.
I am in communication with Dion’s father, Mr. Joseph Bridgers [Brother Joseph Muhammad to many of us]. The family wishes to express their profound gratitude for your outpour of kindness and condolences during this very difficult time. They are strongly grounded in their faith and comforted by your care and concern.
Under separate correspondence, I will inform you of the services for our beloved family member, Dion Bridgers.
Discussions about the death of someone the students admire are never simple. Our children may want to discuss Dion when they return to school next week. We will have the crisis team in place for students at Highview Elementary on January 2, 2019. We will also prepare school-based pupil personnel staff at each school for such discussions and/or counseling. Furthermore, we will arrange for a grief counselor to be onsite for staff and faculty who may wish to partake in this offering. This will be on a volunteer basis only.
GCSD Family, we lost another beautiful soul who cared deeply for our children. Now, more than any other time, must we come together as a school community to demonstrate kindness and love for one another. Tomorrow is too late! In Dion’s memory, please continue to view our beautiful children as young kings/young queens and ensure they are treated as royalty.
Please take the remainder of the Winter break to enjoy your family and dear loved ones. Keep loved ones close to your heart and remind them of your love and care for them. May the new year bring us all a renewed sense of purpose and a moral imperative to take care of each other. Thank you, and I appreciate you all.

Firefighter sues the employer of 3 deceased utility workers on their behalf
November 30th, 2017|Fire News|0 Comments
Share This Story, Choose Your Platform!
A Florida volunteer firefighter who nearly died trying to save three doomed utility workers is now suing their employer on their behalf.
Key Largo Volunteer Fire Department member Leonardo Moreno jumped into a hole after utility workers reported two men that may have been stuck or drowning. Once inside, he realized that the men in question succumbed to a deadly combination of hydrogen sulfide and carbon monoxide.
The lawsuit is targeting the organization responsible for the site, claiming that the company was negligent by allowing the crew to enter a toxic area and failing to alert firefighters to the threat.
Moreno, according to his attorney, “was never informed or warned at any time by any individual or entity that noxious or dangerous gases were involved or present.”
According to The Miami Herald, The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration in July cited the company -identified as DN Higgins- with 10 violations totaling more than $100,000 in penalties over the incident. Later, the agency would issue a statement, affirming that “three employees needlessly lost their lives and others were injured due to their employer’s failure to follow safe work practices.”
OSHA reportedly filed the aftermath report as being the result of “detailed lack of training, inadequate on-site equipment to test for hazardous gas and failure to provide emergency equipment to treat workers who are exposed to dangerous fumes.” ... See MoreSee Less

Hiring new Palm Beach County firefighters brings talk of where they should be based
A proposal to position all nine of Palm Beach County's new firefighters in south county communities is raising concerns from their northern neighbors about a public safety strain from new development
Andy ReidContact ReporterSun Sentinel
Adding nine new firefighters to stations in southern Palm Beach County, instead of fast-growing communities to the north, threatens to fan a political brush fire.
The county's initial budget plan concentrates all nine new firefighters in fire stations in Battalion 4, which covers heavily populated areas west of Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Boynton Beach.
But that doesn't address growing public safety needs near Loxahatchee, Wellington and Royal Palm Beach where developers are proposing to turn nearby farmland into thousands of new homes, according to County Commissioner Melissa McKinlay, who represents the area.
That proposal "makes my stomach turn," McKinlay said when it was presented to commissioners recently.
McKinlay wants more of those new positions shifted to fire stations in Battalion 2, which covers areas in her central western district.
"We have heard from residents, we have heard from the men and women who work in those [Battalion 2] stations that they need help," said McKinlay, who called the current plan "a big disappointment."
Fire-rescue officials and county administrators say no final decision has been made about where to put these new firefighters.
Adding all nine new firefighter positions to Battalion 4 is a budget place holder likely to change before the final spending plan gets approved in September, County Administrator Verdenia Baker said.
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue has about 1,500 employees and a $330 million budget.
Nine new firefighters, including salaries and benefits as well as equipment and facility expenses, will cost $729,086, according to the county. Starting pay for a new firefighter is about $40,000 a year.
The county cites an increase in housing development as one of the recent strains on fire-rescue's staffing, triggering the proposal to hire nine firefighters.
A host of new neighborhoods and shopping centers are proposed for Loxahatchee farmland.
Plans for the new city of Westlake include building about 4,500 homes and 2 million square feet of shopping centers, offices and other business space on nearly 4,000 acres north of Okeechobee Boulevard and split by Seminole Pratt Whitney Road.
Next to Westlake, GL Homes proposes building about 4,000 homes on the nearly 5,000-acre Indian Trails Grove property.
While developers are taking aim at Loxahatchee, there also are population strains on public services in southern Palm Beach County where builders have long been constructing new homes on farmland west of Boca Raton and Delray Beach.
County leaders, fire-rescue officials and union representatives are in talks about where to put the nine new firefighters, Baker said.
No final decision has been made on where to position new firefighters and deciding where they go shouldn't turn into a north-county vs. south-county dispute, said Commissioner Steven Abrams, whose district includes Boca Raton and Delray Beach.
"They are going to deploy the people where they are most needed," Abrams said.
