DRIE WEST Networking and Lunch n Learn

Please join Arlene Baxendale from Sandhurst Consulting for a discussion on

“A Program for Emergency Social Services in South Central Alberta”



When people are directly/indirectly affected by an emergency and they need extra support, have you ever wondered who does this, who looks after them and how does it all come together?


If you have, your questions will be answered on the 23rd of February. You will leave the lunch and learn with a clearer picture of what happens to evacuees and how it all works within the province of Alberta.  South Central ESS has taken a unique and collaborative approach to this issue and hired Sandhurst Consulting to execute their thoughts and ideas.  An on-line course, in-person course and an instructor’s manual to help in the process was developed. Three short videos were also produced to aid in the learning process.
