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.

Alberta Hotel Partner Needed for Police Award

Monday, October 28th, 2019

The John Petropoulos Memorial Fund (JPMF) will soon be handing out awards to two exemplary Calgary Police Service (CPS) constables.

We recognize police officers annually with the John Petropoulos Leadership Award because we feel it’s important to honour the vital work they do and reward them for a job well done.

The award is given to one CPS constable from District 6 (where John Petropoulos worked as a constable), as well as a constable in District 1 each year. It recognizes a recipient who displays those attributes that John himself demonstrated – integrity, dedication to police work, commitment to excellence, courage and honour. {read more}

The period of enlightenment is one element of the wake-up call, and the response to it – if it happens at all – is another potential component.

In our experience, there have been countless wake-up calls when it comes to workplace safety. {read more}
