Ottawa-based consulting firm Calian announced that it has been awarded contracts in Emergency Response Preparedness Training with Emergency Management British Columbia and the City of Kingston in addition to contracts with Bruce Power earlier this year.

Calian says it will assist Emergency Management British Columbia with the design, development, conduct, evaluation and after action reporting for ‘Exercise Coastal Response’; an exercise in direct support of the province’s new ‘Earthquake Immediate Response Plan’ (IRP).

Earlier this year, Calian led a customized, scenario-based training program for the City of Kingston’s emergency response teams and high level officials, simulating complex emergency situations and testing the city’s existing emergency response protocols. Calian issued a comprehensive after action report that included a detailed overview of training needs, gaps and next steps.

Calian also continues to work with Bruce Power to design, develop and support their Emergency Response Preparedness Corporate Exercises for 2015 and 2016.

“These new contracts demonstrate the strength and expertise of Calian’s training team,” said Kevin Ford, President and Chief Executive Officer, Calian, in a statement. “We are well positioned to continue to grow this segment of our business, and provide government and private organizations alike with world class training capabilities.”
