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.

Safety Sticker Fiver Fundraiser!

Safety Sticker Fiver Fundraiser!

“Safety is a common denominator across all aspects of life… It is not a matter for industry. It is a matter for humanity.”

– Doug Bourne

It’s Time to Raise a Few Funds! 

And what better way to do that than by selling an item that promotes an important safety message! And who doesn’t love a STICKER?!

Our first safety sticker out of the gate in our “Safety Sticker Fiver Fundraiser” Series is “Safety First; Fatalities Are Forever.” (Because they are…that’s why the JPMF exists in the first place).

The sticker is 3 inches x 3 inches. They are $5 each – or 5 for $20.

To order, please visit the JPMF store. 

What to DO with the safety sticker? 

Well, you can put them in a window

On your laptop

On an envelope (a super way to spread the safety message!)…

Or wherever you (and/or the kids in your life) decide a sticker needs to go (such as a bike or ski helmet!).

Your purchase supports the work of the JPMF and helps share important safety messages.

When it comes to making safety a top priority, we can never get enough reminders. Click To Tweet

Share your sticker pics with us!

If you purchase a sticker, please tag us on social media (FB, Twitter or Insta) of how you are using it (unless it is x-rated – difficult to imagine but definitely possible)!

Thank you 🙂

About the JPMF

The JPMF was started shortly after the death of Calgary Police Constable John Petropoulos on Sept 29th, 2000. John was investigating a break and enter complaint when he stepped through a false ceiling, fell nine feet into the lunchroom below and died of a brain injury. There was no safety railing to warn him of the danger; the complaint turned out to be a false alarm.

John was 32.

The JPMF is a registered Canadian charity that raises public awareness about workplace safety issues and educates people about why & how to ensure their workplaces and the roads are safer for everyone, including emergency responders. For further information, please visit
