Impact Security Group is again honored to sponsor the Disaster Management Conference at Canad Inns Polo Park. This year speakers such as Ray Nagin, past Mayor of New Orleans who in August 2005, ordered New Orleans’ first ever mandatory evacuation in its almost 300 year history. During the immediate storm aftermath, he never left his post and demanded action for his stranded citizens. Mr. Nagin also successfully lobbied for billions of federal recovery dollars for a state of the art hurricane protection system, unprecedented housing repairs and other critical infrastructure enhancements.
These conferences are important in the development of our emergency preparedness as we had seen first hand what a disaster can do to your community during the widespread flooding during 2011 throughout HWY 6 in Manitoba. Impact Security Group was first on hand to provide assistance for many communities and worked very closely with each municipality to ensure that their needs were taken care of.
