ERMC receives letter of reference from Viterra

ERMC is proud to have a professional relationship with Viterra. Our multi-phase project involved the development of a crisis communications plan, set-up of a dedicated Emergency Operations Centre (EOC), and a Tabletop Exercise to validate both the plan and EOC.

Disaster Forum 2013 was a great success!

ERMC was proud to be a sponsor at the 2013 edition of Disaster Forum held in Banff, Alberta. This year’s conference theme was “Plan to Communicate” and was a resounding success. ERMC’s presence at Disaster Forum 2013 was as follows:

  • A pre-conference workshop on Advanced Exercise Design by ERMC Senior Consultant Bruno Cornejo
  • “Getting your Executives to Lead the Parade” – a one hour session delivered by ERMC President Ed Wendlandt
  • “Workplace Sheltering-in-Place” – a one hour session delivered by Bruno Cornejo
  • On the afternoon of May 15th a staged EOC Exercise, developed by ERMC Consultant Shawn Grono and moderated by President Ed Wendlandt. The Exercise¬†had volunteer conference delegates playing¬†Emergency Operations Centre staff of a fictional Alberta municipality responding to a scripted emergency scenario, with the rest of the delegates observing their actions.

All of the speaker’s material and video footage of the demonstration exercise will be posted at www.disasterforum.ca. ERMC looks forward to sponsoring and attending the 2014 edition of Disaster Forum, see you there!
