No cost!

There are many crucial decisions that need to be made following a critical incident on campus, i.e., mass casualty incident, active shooter, hazardous material incident, or major fire, and are crucial to its outcome. Please join Bob Maber, Director of Emergency Management at the University of Calgary, for an informative webinar providing information regarding best practices and lessons learned on this important topic.

The Emergency Management department is responsible for Emergency Response and Business Continuity planning, training activities, fire safety and emergency wardens. Bob has spearheaded the development and launch of the new UCEmergency app, the active shooter video and provided training to the Emergency Operations Group and the Crisis Management Team. He also played a key role in the emergency operations for the 2013 Calgary flood, the University of Calgary’s response to the Fort McMurray wildfire in 2016, and the recent multi-agency Active Assailant Exercise which was held on campus in June 2017.

NAPAHE Featured Testimonial

3810973358 losey teriIf you are hesitating about whether or not to join NAPAHE or to attend the NAPAHE conference….don’t!  I have been a member of NAPAHE for about 12 years now.  The biggest advantage to me has been the connections I’ve made with other presidential assistants -- the friends and colleagues are invaluable.  

During the course of the year I now have contacts I can reach out to if I have a particularly sticky situation or question I need addressed related to my position.  I know I get great advice from seasoned professionals whom I trust and who understand the work.  And, each year at the conference we reconnect in person!  Awesomesauce!
