As of January 21/04

New Business:

  • Proposed Manual Change: Tom Cooper presented a draft of proposed Manual changes for the issuing of Code 8s during a planned event. Please see insert below. The committee agreed to have the proposal sent to the CAER Working Committee for approval.

    DRAFT-REVISED JAN.18/2004

    PROPOSED ADDITION TO SECTION 8-CODE 8 NOTICEABLE OCCURRENCE-PAGE 7:

    8.0 CODE 8 WHEN IT IS NOT NEEDED:

    8.1 AMBULANCE RESPONSES WOULD NOT NORMALLY REQUIRE A CODE 8, HOWEVER INCIDENTS INVOLVING MULTIPLE INJURIES WOULD.

    8.2 WHEN ADVANCE NOTICE IS ISSUED TO THE MUNICIPALITY BY FAX, MEDIA RELEASE OR OTHER FORMAL NOTICE ADVISING OF AN UPCOMING ANTICIPATED NOTICEABLE OCCURRENCE, THE ISSUING OF A CODE 8 AND FAXING OF A CVECO NOTIFICATION CHECKLIST WILL NOT BE REQUIRED.
     

  • Emergency Preparedness: Erik Mortensen agreed to sit on a sub-committee with the CAC to plan for this event.
  • A request was made for the Digital Maps and Ron Lebel responded with the suggestion that the total cost of the maps be divided against the whole CVECO membership to come up with a reasonable cost for everyone. Action Item: B. Hatfield
     
  • New CVECO Boxes: The pads are completed and the boxes have been picked up but not installed yet. Tom Cooper requested that industry in area #2 implement "adopt a box" for deployment during traffic control of incidents. Tom Cooper will send the information required to Geoff Clarke at Shell. Positions of new boxes will have to be sent to George Hatfield to revamp maps. Action Items: Tom Cooper and Brian Hatfield.

Introductions were made all round

Sads Exercise: Doug MacKenzie gave a report on the SADS exercise that took place on the Bluewater Bridge on October 26, 2003. The committee reviewed the exercise and a full report of the event is on the CAER web-site.
