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.

Looking for volunteers who are up to par

The Calgary Police Association’s annual charity golf tournament – benefiting the John Petropoulos Memorial Fund – is coming up and we’re looking for a few volunteers to chip in.

The tournament takes place on Friday, Aug. 18th at River Spirit Golf Club and we need helpers for morning and afternoon shifts.

The morning shift runs from 7 am until 1 pm and the afternoon shift starts at noon and ends around 6 pm.

Volunteers will set up off the greens of par 3 holes, where they will watch for hole-in-ones – big prizes are up for grabs for any golfer who makes a hole-in-one.

JPMF helpers will also sell raffle tickets and 50/50 tickets to the golfers.

Dress for this event is casual and volunteers are asked to be prepared for a variety of weather conditions: please bring a hat, sunscreen, bug spray and a foldable chair. Food and beverages are complimentary for volunteers, who are also welcome to stay for a warm meal at the luncheon/banquet following their shift. In addition, volunteers can use the driving range free of charge when their shift is complete.

This tournament is a major fundraiser for us and a fun event for our volunteers!

If you’d like to help out, please contact JPMF Managing Director Ian Wilson at
