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.


SLOW DOWN: It’s No Picnic Out Here

SLOW DOWN: It’s No Picnic Out Here

This public service announcement highlights the dangers faced by first responders at emergency scenes and traffic calls. The TV spot, which has aired throughout Canada and parts of the U.S. since 2006, features police officers, paramedics, firefighters and tow-truck drivers playing games in a picnic setting until midway through when a firefighter asks “What is it you think we’re doing?” The PSA then shows first responders doing their jobs at an emergency scene before announcing: “Please give us room to work and slow down, because it’s no picnic out here.” The TV spot is accompanied by posters, print PSAs and decals which can be found on emergency vehicles across Western Canada.
