Whistleblower from Utah Chemical Weapons Incinerator
to Receive Civic Courage Award
in Washington Ceremony December 14, 1995
Steve Jones, the former Chief Safety officer at the U.S. Army's Tooele,
Utah Chemical Weapons Incinerator, who was fired for reporting that the
facility presented "unacceptable risks" to the public, will receive the Joe
Callaway Award for Civic Courage in a presentation at 5:00 P.M.
Thursday, December 14, 1995 at the Carnegie Institution Building
Auditorium, 1530 P. St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
Steven W. Jones, a decorated career military munitions safety specialist,
blew the whistle on serious design flaws in the $650 million chemical
weapons incinerator and spoke out about procedural and operational
dangers at the Tooele, Utah site. Jones was fired for raising issues of
worker and public health and safety.
The Award will be presented by the Shafeek Nader Trust For Community
Interest. The award was established by Mr. Callaway to recognize
individuals who, with integrity and at some personal risk take a public
stance to advance truth and justice, and who challenge prevailing
conditions in pursuit of the common good. Toward this end, Mr.
Calloway endowed the Trust with a special fund for an annual award
honoring citizens for their civic courage. Each year this award is given
to three Americans.
The Shafeek Nader Trust is a tax-exempt organization, and presents the
Callaway Award as a method of advancing the ability of citizens to
participate and shape the quality of democracy in their community.
