The Howling Wolf

Just as our wolf logo symbolizes the leadership, loyalty, strength of character and sense of family that is displayed by emergency responders, The Howling Wolf serves as the voice of the John Petropoulos Memorial Fund. A wolf’s howl attracts other members of the pack, invites communication and creates a strong bond between pack members. We hope this blog will have the same impact on emergency responders, workplace safety professionals and traffic safety advocates, bringing us all together in the same pack and providing valuable information about workplace safety issues affecting first responders.

Check in frequently for updates on JPMF events and initiatives, interesting research and to add your own howl to our pack.

Dear JPMF supporter

Monday, January 16th, 2017

As you know we are committed to creating safer workplaces and roads for first responders.

We offer safety videos and presentations that are aimed at educating the public about its role in helping to keep emergency responders safe on the job. And those who heed our safety tips not only create safer environments for first responders – they create a safer world for everyone. Many of you have seen our videos and our safety presentations.

In order to continue to raise awareness and educate others about our safety messages, we need to reach more people. Much like we’ve taught you about workplace safety from a different perspective, we are hoping you can help us to teach others. {read more}

John Petropoulos Leadership Award winners

Monday, December 12th, 2016

The 2016 John Petropoulos Leadership Award winners have been announced and the recipients have been honoured.

The award – a collaboration between the JPMF and the Calgary Police Service (CPS) – is given on an annual basis to a member from District 6, where Const. John Petropoulos worked as a police officer, as well as an officer from District 1.

It recognizes constables who display those attributes that John himself demonstrated – integrity, dedication to police work, commitment to excellence, courage and honour. The award includes a cash prize and a stay at a luxury hotel. The prize offers an opportunity for the award recipients to enjoy a getaway with loved ones and hopefully leave the stresses of police work behind for a few days. {read more}
