Taking surveillance to the edge
Alberta Health Services, an integrated health-care system covering 98 acute care hospitals and more than a thousand facilities province-wide, is rolling out a decentralized surveillance camera model, with video storage out on the edge.
Where are all the women in security?
Be prepared to stretch beyond your comfort zone, have the confidence you can do the job and take risks.

Rouge Valley guards honoured by IAHSS
Two Rouge Valley Health System security guards were honoured at the recent International Association of Healthcare Security and Safety annual meeting in Toronto with the association's Medal of Valour.
Guards caught up in OPP raids
At the annual general meeting of the International Association of Healthcare Safety and Security in Toronto last month, two guards from Rouge Valley Hospital were awarded the association’s Medal of Valour for their efforts in helping prevent someone in the hospital’s parking lot from committing suicide. Their supervisor, Martin Green, nominated them for the award and they proudly attended the IAHSS dinner to receive their medals. It’s a stark contrast to what many other guards in the industry experience, especially in Ontario right now as they struggle not only to earn a living wage but also to maintain their right to work.

Coming Up: Canadian Security June 2011
Bridging the gap between security and fire and life safety
In an emergency, many security department personnel wouldn't know how to operate the fire safety equipment in their facilities or how to manage the evacuation of a building in the event of a fire or other incident. From basic fire extinguishers to fire phones, sprinklers, pull stations and standpipe hoses it's all pretty much a mystery to many in the security department. But it doesn't have to be that way. Cadillac Fairview has developed a half-day "Reality-Based Building Evacuation" training program designed specifically for building security and operations personnel. Canadian Security went along with the Cadillac Fairview team as they were put through their paces going down a simulated smoke-filled stairwell and learning how to manage fire safety equipment.
The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority will announce the new screening contracts for Canada's airports in August. So what will the winners be expected to deliver and how will they be measured under CATSA's new model?
