Emergency Management

Newfoundlanders and Labradorians have learned over the years that emergencies can and will happen.

We have experienced hurricanes, floods, wildland fires and severe weather, along with an extended pandemic.

The key to surviving all of these incidents is preparation and planning. Safely NL, in cooperation with Stanton Associates, an internationally experienced, Mount Pearl based company are offering three introductory workshops in the critical areas of:

  •  Basic Emergency Planning
  • Media Relations
  • Crisis Communications

These Zoom workshops are being offered at the affordable rate of $150.00 per workshop.

A former journalist with CTV and Access Alberta, President Jim Stanton was the Director of Communications and Director of Government Relations for Canada Post before setting up Stanton Associates in 1990, a Vancouver based communications and training company with offices in Canada and the USA.












Jim’s credentials are well known in the communications and emergency preparedness community. Jim and his team have taught crisis communications and media relations to fire information officers in BC, Alberta and Ontario. The firm also offers media spokesperson training, effective presentations and the use of social media for organizations.


Wabush Mayor Ron Barron said: “Jim’s calm cool demeanour and his excellent emergency planning skills got us through the largest fire in the history of Western Labrador without a hitch. He’s the “go-to guy” for emergency planning and crisis communications.”

Dr. Sheela Basrur, the late Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health, asked Jim to sit on the blue ribbon SARS Panel to examine strategic communications considerations for Ontario’s new health programs. Dr. Basrur said: “I asked Jim Stanton to join our SARS Experts Panel because he is one of the leading minds in crisis communications & media relations in Canada.”
