Governor Ducey Issues Statewide Declaration Of Emergency, Curfew Beginning Tonight
Declaration Also Authorizes An Expanded National Guard Mobilization
PHOENIX — Governor Doug Ducey today issued a statewide Declaration of Emergency, including putting in place a curfew starting at 8:00 p.m. tonight. The curfew is in effect from 8:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m. and shall expire on Monday, June 8, at 5:00 a.m. unless further extended.

“At the request of local leaders and in coordination with state and local law enforcement, I’m issuing a statewide Declaration of Emergency and curfew starting at 8:00 p.m. tonight and effective for one week,” said Governor Ducey. “This gives law enforcement an additional tool to prevent the lawlessness we’ve seen here and in cities nationwide. Police will be equipped to make arrests of individuals who are planning to riot, loot or cause damage and unrest. Today’s declaration also authorizes an expanded National Guard mobilization to protect life and property throughout the state. Our office will continue to communicate with local law enforcement to provide whatever resources we can.”

WHEREAS, certain persons have engaged in riots resulting in assaults, vandalism, violence and criminal damage; and

WHEREAS, the violent civil disturbances and riots have continued and grown nationally and in Arizona, endangering additional lives and property; and

WHEREAS, on May 28, 2020, a protest was held in downtown Phoenix, however, after ending, a number of those attending did not disburse and began to cause a civil disturbance and riot causing damage to police vehicles with officers in them, vandalizing government buildings and throwing rocks and other items at police; and

Active Shooter Preparedness | CISA 05/07/2020

Active Shooter Preparedness | CISA

There is a new active shooter preparedness resource. The Active Shooter Preparedness: Access and Functional Needs video provides information that organizations may incorporate into their emergency action plans to ensure that persons with access and functional needs are properly considered during an active shooter incident. This video was developed in coordination with the DHS Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, FEMA Office of Disability and Integration, Society for Human Resource Management, and the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services / Office of Access and Functional Needs.

It is currently available via the DHS YouTube website (, and will be posted onto the CISA Active Shooter Preparedness website in the coming days.

Please share widely!

Active Shooter Preparedness | CISA DHS aims to enhance preparedness through a ”whole community” approach by providing training, products, and resources to a broad range of stakeholders on issues such as active shooter awareness, incident response, and workplace violence.


GLENDALE, Ariz. — Luke Air Force Base, along with the Arizona Air National Guard, will honor frontline coronavirus workers with a flyover planned for May 1.

Luke AFB says its 56th Fighter Wing and the 944th Fighter Wing and Arizona Air National Guard 161st Refueling Wing will participate in the community flyover.

The flyover will consist of a formation of 15 aircraft including seven F-35A Lightning IIs and seven F-16 Fighting Falcons flying out of Luke Air Force Base and one KC-135 from the 161st ARW.

The flyover will begin around 3:10 p.m. and last about 50 minutes.

The flight path will take them through Buckeye, Luke Air Force Base, Litchfield Park, Surprise, Waddell, Goodyear, Tolleson, Phoenix Metro, Tempe, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale, Deer Valley, Glendale, Peoria, Sun City West and El Mirage.

"We are honored to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the healthcare workers, first responders, military members and other essential personnel who are working on the front lines to combat the coronavirus," said Brig. Gen. Todd Canterbury, 56th Fighter Wing commander. "We want everyone to be able to look up from their homes and enjoy the display of American airpower, resolve and pride while keeping frontline responders in their hearts."

Residents in those areas should expect a few seconds of jet noise as the aircraft pass overhead.

Luke AFB encourages people to watch the flyover from the safety of their own homes and not travel to landmarks or hospitals.

Those watching can tag Luke AFB using , and . Use to be featured on our platforms as well.

StrokeVAN App

After years of waiting to get this app approved by Apple, Dr. Teleb was finally successful in turning the VAN assessment into a Mobile app!

It is 95-98% accurate in predicting LVO (large vessel occlusion).

At the moment, some kinks are being worked out with the vision assessment-but what a neat tool.

Securing Soft Targets and Crowded Places

Below is a direct link to a new resource, Video: Chemical Attack – What You Should Know. The video was created by CISA Infrastructure Security Division to enhance public and private sector stakeholders’ understanding of the chemical attack threat, and includes potential indicators, tactics and techniques, and suggested mitigating steps.

To facilitate viewing, please access the video via YouTube:

The product will also be available in the coming days via the DHS Active Shooter Preparedness ( and Securing Soft Targets and Crowded Places ( websites. Soft targets and crowded places are increasingly appealing to terrorists and other extremist actors because of their relative accessibility and the large number of potential targets. This challenge is complicated by the prevalent use of simple tactics and less sophisticated attacks.

Love to all my fellow hard working Nurses and healthcare team!!! 💕

I suspect it is hard to love a Nurse. We get up early and don't have time to drink coffee over the newspaper. We come home late and are too tired to cook. We work extra because we know there are families who need us. We don't get too excited over a minor crisis because we deal with issues all day. We have seen far worse. We don't want to talk when we come home. We have talked all day. We don't want to move when we come home. We have moved all day. It may seem, that we have left all our caring, our heart, and our love at work, then come home feeling empty. We probably are empty. But we don't tell you that many times at work we are scared. Scared we are missing something. Scared we will let our patients and their families down. Scared to go into homes of unknown people and scared what we might find. We have to deal with angry families and all the while do our best to help them. We don't tell you how the trauma we see affects us, and how stressed we are for the pain our families are going through. I suspect it is hard to love a Nurse but know this: I'm a Nurse that needs/wants to be loved. I want to be understood. I want others to understand and "get it". I'm a nurse and I want to be taken care of. I'm a nurse and there are many days when it's the hardest work I have ever done.
I would like to thank those of you out there who love us, support us, encourage us and let us do this work, this calling, this life: Nursing.💗💗

It’s time for our 12th annual Game Day staff “Meet the Team” event. Thanks to Torey and his staff, we are able to continue this fun tradition of having our game-day staff meet the 2018 version of our Arizona Diamondbacks players, coaches and staff. Listed below are the particulars for this year’s event:

• This year’s event will take place prior to the D-backs-Padres game on Sunday, April 22.
• Actual “meet and greet” time will be 10:30 am to 10:50 am.
• All game-day staff who are interested in participating should assemble in seating section 111 no later than 10:15 am. If anyone needs special accommodations, please access via the field gate at section RF-W.
• We will begin staging on the field at 10:20 am, starting near the D-backs dugout and continuing the line around home plate and down the first base/right field line. As we have done in the past, we will have the ticket office staff be at the front of the line so that they can return to work as soon as possible.
• Parking: Woodie Browder will work through the Convention Center East Garage (7th street and Jefferson) to allow early entry for staff parking.
• Remember this event is for employees only—no families, children or pets.
• This is not an autograph session—please do not bring any items with you to be signed.
• You are more than welcome to bring a camera with you to take pictures as team personnel come by, however we ask that you do not ask for individual or “posed” pictures (even though you always do!!).
Grounds Keeping:
• Please keep ample space on the warning track for staff and players to walk through, utilizing the yellow rope and stakes.
Department Heads Who Oversee Game Day Staff:
• Please start surveying your respective staff members and get back with me with an approximate headcount of participants by April 20.
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact me. Hope to see everyone out on the 22nd.
