Last month we brought you the CalOES training session. This month we bring you the first program in the Disaster Preparedness & Resiliency initiative series.
This presentation by Parsons will focus on the firm's resiliency plan; how it was formulated as well as its component details including response & safety protocols, how employees & clientele are reached, and how to maintain business while in a crisis, to name a few.
Join us for this informative session to learn how to better prepare yourself and your firm to stay resilient!
We need a team of volunteers to be location scouts as part of a London wide street improvement project. We are looking for potential sites on High Streets, commercial thoroughfares and also residential roads across the capital that can be transformed into a pop-up pocket park.These could be empty lots, a gap between buildings,or disused parking spaces, for example. If you are interested, please contact Arome. Attached is a briefing document.
This year we're partnering with Playground (an awesome digital design firm) to raise awareness and food for the Daily Bread Food Bank, Toronto's largest community food bank, through Canstruction.
