INTERNATIONAL TRADE MISSION
Emergency Management & Training Inc. (EMT) was pleased to be part of a trade mission, sponsored by the Ontario and Canadian Governments, to Thailand and Singapore. On this trip, we had the opportunity to participate in Medical Fair Asia which is an event designed for the medical and healthcare industry which brings together the region’s hospital, diagnostic, pharmaceutical, medical and rehabilitation sectors and provides a platform for networking and the discovery of the latest industry innovations.
We made numerous connections with organizations serving Southeast Asia including the Asian Disaster Preparedness Centre with whom we have already entered into a project proposal for the redevelopment of the federal emergency preparedness program in Bangladesh. We look forward to this and many other potential projects arising from this trade mission.

FIRE SAFETY TRAINING DONE RIGHT
A recent fire in a patient’s room at one of our hospital client’s facilities has proved the value of our consistent, high quality, professional fire safety training. Emergency Management & Training Inc. has been providing regular fire safety and evacuation training, along with monthly fire drills for this client for the past couple of years. When a fire started in a patient’s room, the training paid off as hospital staff responded quickly to remove the patient from immediate danger and evacuate the rest of the wing, potentially saving lives and preventing injuries.
Average training produces average results. Our outstanding training produces outstanding results and can mean the difference between life and death, as demonstrated by this client’s emergency.
We encourage all healthcare facilities, including hospitals, long term care and retirement residences, to truly examine the effectiveness of their training programs. Do your staff have the training they need to be prepared to reduce risk and save lives? If your answer is no, give us a call today +001 (705) 719-9007, a life may depend on it.
