Event Details

Mr. Palmer will continue to champion many of CATA's ongoing public safety initiatives and will be spearheading the creation of a new advisory board comprised of Canada's leading authorities in emergency response and technology solution providers.

"I look forward to continuing to advance the important work that CATA has undertaken towards strengthening the relationship between public safety and industry leaders," says Mr. Palmer. "I have had the pleasure of collaborating with the CATA team for many years as a public safety official, and the opportunity of working alongside them in a much more intrinsic fashion seems a natural next step in my career and allows me to continue to address the critical technologically-based challenges facing Canada's public safety community."

One of Mr. Palmer's first initiatives will be to establish a public safety advisory committee comprised of responders, industry leaders, and academics, whose role will be to expand public safety related research, events, and advocacy needs. He will also continue to be instrumentally involved in the annual First Responder Vendor Outreach Forums, monthly public safety webcast series, and advancing the first responder technology transfer and procurement portal currently in its early planning stage.
