Please join us on March 20, 2019 at the RCAF Officer’s Mess 158 Gloucester St Ottawa, for our next quarterly event.
Dana Fleming, the emergency manager, for the University of Ottawa and Jocelyne Lahaie, from Emergency Management, Public Safety Canada will present on topics of interest (as determined from the feedback forms) that our members will find relevant and timely.
Dana oversees the Emergency Management Program at uOttawa, which she joined in 2008 following 10 years managing an Emergency Communications Centre, She is also a member of uOttawa’s Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) during active emergency situations. In addition, Dana is a regular contributor to community forums, white papers and research studies on emergency management in higher education settings. Her topic is « It’s time to upgrade your Fire Warden program » Following the 2014 Parliament Hill shooting and the University of Ottawa’s subsequent 6 hour Lockdown, an analysis was conducted on the institution’s ability to respond to large-scale emergency situations. Many findings led to many projects, one of which was the complete overhaul of the Fire Warden Program, which had remained relatively unchanged for over 30 years.
