Faculty Member Part of Houston Search and Rescue

NYPD detective and Hofstra Adjunct Professor of History James Coll ’95 was deployed to Houston on August 27 as a member of the elite NYPD/FDNY Urban Search and Rescue team to assist in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. The mission was not Coll’s first to save lives.  When U.S. Airways Flight 1549 crash-landed in the Hudson River in 2009, Coll was a first responder on the scene. His efforts during the “Miracle on the Hudson” earned him and his unit the “Cop of the Year” award from the New York City Police Foundation.
