Hope in the City Breakfast London 2017
Wednesday, 15 November 2017 from 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM (EST)
On November 15, The Salvation Army of London presents the 6th annual Hope in the City breakfast to bring together London’s business community for an important cause: creating hope in the City of London.
Our special guest speaker is Fort McMurray Fire Chief (retired) Darby Allen.
Known as the face of the monstrous Alberta wildfires—and widely celebrated as a national hero—Darby Allen is an exemplar of selfless courage and level-headedness under pressure. Allen was Regional Fire Chief of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (now retired), an area that encompasses the community of Fort McMurray. In spring 2016, he spearheaded the evacuation of the city’s entire population while the rest of the world watched. Throughout the ensuing weeks of operations, he worked tirelessly with first responders and volunteers, who came from across the nation (and globe) to assist. His updates to the media were not only a means of reliable information, but a source of optimism—Allen provided calm reassurance as the lead spokesperson throughout the rescue efforts.
