Disaster Management Professionals

Awards Program
For the 5th year running, the Canadian Centre for Emergency Preparedness (CCEP) is calling for nominations for the Canadian Emergency Management and Business Continuity Awards.

We all know someone who works above and beyond to contribute to preparedness in Canada and it is these awards that will recognize those individuals.

Through a nomination and selection committee process, one individual in emergency management and one in business continuity will be selected. Part of the criteria for the nominees will be those who have made extraordinary and lasting contributions to the fields of emergency management or business continuity in Canada.

Templates and Documents
Everyone is constantly looking for help in the form of templates and examples. Why re-invent the wheel if there is something out there that works for you? We will attempt to help you find what you are looking for by providing some free CCEP templates for downloading.

As part of our service to the Disaster Management community we provide links to various sites of interest to professionals. All links provided are for informational purposes only. A link to an organization does not imply CCEP's endorsement of that organization's products, services or philosophy.

National Survey
We have completed the first in a series of biannual national survey-based studies. The first study is titled: Preparing for Crises: Findings and Implications from the National Survey on Emergency Preparedness
in Canada.

The objective was to gather information about how the public views Emergency Preparedness and to provide community emergency management professionals with information to enable them to adapt their programs to better educate the public on this vital issue.

The survey is available for free downloading.
