October 2, 2012 grassland fires whipped through the Rural Municipality of
Stuartburn, resulting in evacuations of residents and destroying 4 homes in the
town of Vita. Later that same week, thousands of residents in the same area
were without power due to an ice storm. Thick ice and fallen trees blown over
by wind and heavy weight of snow brought down power lines.
presentation will offer an overview of how these two separate and yet connected
disaster events were managed from three different perspectives: that of the
Emergency Measures Coordinator in the region, Emergency Social Services and
Manitoba Hydro. Participants will gain insight into the realities of executing
community level and corporate emergency/service continuity plans, where things
went well and where improvements can be made.
