Public Safety National Teleconference Recordings Now Available

Recordings of recent teleforums held with leaders in the public safety community provide key insights into the challenges facing public safety organizations and the opportunities for collaboration and public private partnerships to address them.

Listen as CATAAlliance VP Kevin Wennekes hosts a national teleconference discussion with John-Paul Cody-Cox, Executive Director of the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs (CAFC), and Chief Paul Boissonneault, First Vice President of the CAFC and Fire Chief & CEMC, County of Brant, as they discuss the upcoming annual Fire-Rescue Canada Conference taking place in Ottawa from September 14 - 17, 2014 and the addition of CATAAlliance’s unique Executive Boardroom series to this year’s Conference. Listener’s will come to understand the unique value these sessions offer not only the vendors that obtain one of these sessions, but the value they offer to the responder community as well.

This session provides information on a Public Safety & Security ICT Trade Mission to Australia and New Zealand planned to take place from 30th September to 7th October 2014.

Led by senior officials from Canada’s first responder community, this mission will provide participants with an opportunity to meet with key players and gather first-hand market intelligence on Australasia’s rapidly expanding public safety and security markets within a diverse cross-section of private companies, associations, public safety agencies and public sector entities.

Listen to details as provided by Nigel Sabin, Trade Commissioner, Australia Consulate General of Canada, Fabienne Bovis, Trade Commissioner, New Zealand Consulate and Trade Office of Canada, Eric Torunski, Executive Director, CITIG, and Inspector (Ret.) Lance Valcour, O.O.M, Mission Advisor, and CATAAlliance’s VP Kevin Wennekes, as they share an overview of the mission details and answer related questions from participants.

Recently, CATAAlliance’s VP Kevin Wennekes held national dialogues Eric Torunski and Inspector (Ret.) Lance Valcour O.O.M., respectively, the recently new and past Executive Directors of the Canadian Interoperability Technology Interest Group (CITIG), and a second session with Steve Palmer, Executive Director, Collaborative Centre for Justice and Safety, University of Regina, and CATAAlliance’s Public Safety Advisory Board Chair.

In the discussion with CITIG, listeners will learn more about the organization’s future plans and the on-going challenges and opportunities facing not only public safety organizations seeking to adapt to a need for an interoperable environment, but to vendors seeking to apply their unique products and services to the challenge, and to government departments struggling to define the nature and needs to support their emergency response communities.

In this discussion with Steve Palmer, Executive Director, Collaborative Centre for Justice and Safety, University of Regina, and CATAAlliance’s Public Safety Advisory Board Chair, listeners will become more familiar with the many initiatives being planned this year to help address the challenges and opportunities facing Canada’s public safety communities. Topics included the development of a national Public Safety Broadband Network, the New Economics and Models of Community Public Safety, a First Responder Technology Roadmap, a National Public Safety Procurement Portal, NG 911, Public Wireless Alerting, exciting new research on the adoption and use of public safety technologies, and much more.
