National First Responder Secretariat for Citizens: Call for federal members of Parliament support! Dear members of Parliament
CATAAlliance has tabled an eight page Pre-Budget Consultation Submission to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance and related Ministers, entitled, “ A National First Responder Secretariat Advancing Innovation, Health, and Safety for Canada’s First Responders and Citizens.”
Full details can be reviewed at: http://www.cata.ca/Media_and_Events/Press_Releases/cata_pr08101601.html
The rationale is set out for the Secretariat in the preface to the above communique:
“ Failure to create the necessary governance, standards, and leadership, will almost certainly, through eventual system and process failure, result in lost lives and reduced trust in the various level of government and agencies to provide a safe and more secure environment for all Canadians.”
We are calling on all members of Parliament to help lead this important initiative.
On behalf of the CATA Innovation Leadership Council
John Reid, CATA CEO
