Southern Alberta Flooding Lessons

Posted by Vicki Thomas in Natural Disasters , Calgary Floods

Vicki Thomas

In 2005, citizens of Southern Alberta were deeply impacted by what Environment Canada named the "top weather event of the year"... And yes, we're talking about heavy flooding that resulted in 14 municipalities declaring a state of emergency. Residents of Canmore, High River and Calgary were evacuated...

Sounds kind of similar doesn't it to the experiences of Southern Alberta citizens this past summer... In mid-June, the province and in particular the communities of Calgary, High River and Canmore were hit once again with severe flooding. Flooding that resulted in the closure of downtown Calgary, emergency evacuations of people from their homes, closure of businesses, deaths, and the complete loss of homes and businesses.

As you know the more resources and information you have easily accessible, the easier it is to make smart, educated and informed decisions. Articles, research studies and case studies do go a long way in providing this information but sometimes you just need to see the plain and simple details.

This is where the DRJ Business Continuity Glossary comes in very handy. Our comprehensive and recently updated glossary gives you all of the tools and knowledge you need to better research, analyze and understand the business continuity space.

Event Security

Posted by Vicki Thomas in Boston Marathon

Vicki Thomas

The two bombs that exploded during Monday's Boston Marathon have left many people asking "How could this have happened?" and "What could have been done to prevent such attacks?". These thoughts and questions are being heard on the radio, television, websites, and social media - essentially most people are stunned and in shock over the two explosions that killed three people and left countless others injured.

In parellel with these questions of disbelief and shock there is also a large group of people who are not as surprised or shocked. These are people who are involved in event security, event planning, disaster management, and law enforcement. That's right the very planners and organizers of such large events as the Boston Marathon, the Super Bowl, Thanksgiving Day parades - essentially any other outdoor "insecure" event - has thought about, planned for, considered and worried about an attack such as the one that occurred on Monday.
