Presentation description and Tracey Blainer bio:

 

 

Think Like a Trainer: Developing an emergency and continuity program people will actually use.

When developing training, the focus is always on what the end user needs to be able to do. All instruction and activities lead the learner toward completing previously identified tasks. This same approach can be used to develop an emergency and continuity program that focuses on building resources you will use at 3am when the call comes in; not just on documents that look good to regulators. Come ready to participate as we look at how ENMAX prepared the Shepard Energy Centre personnel and the Generation Emergency Management Program for emergency response readiness.

 

Tracy Blaine is the Supervisor, Emergency Response and Business Continuity for the Generation side of ENMAX. She guides the ongoing development of a comprehensive program including procedure and plan development and maintenance, training, and exercising for both plant and office personnel. She is also leading the head office revisions to their ERP and BCPs. Thanks to her first career as a teacher, Tracy brings a passion for a systematic approach to training and a focus on end-user needs to her work. Tracy holds her ABCP credential and is currently working on her CEM and CBCP applications. She is an ICS 200 and 300 level instructor and is Chair of the Professionalization of Emergency Management Committee with IAEM.

 

Tracy serves as a Planning Chief in the Generation Emergency Operations Centre and has assisted with the response to the 2013 Calgary flood, chemical releases, and weather events. She also assisted with the ENMAX Power response to the September 2014 snow storm.
