Since its launch in early December, the Keeping Canadians Safe report has generated significant media attention and created a groundswell of growing support among industry and government stakeholders, and First Responders themselves, in continuing to address the technology and emergency preparedness challenges facing our Nation's police, fire and paramedic forces.

Given the critical impact the findings of this study holds for potentially every Canadian citizen, and in order to generate greater levels of awareness and support for the next steps identified within the report, CATAAlliance is providing a complimentary copy of the Executive Summary of this report for immediate download here: http://www.cata.ca/files/PDF/KeepCdnSafe_CATA-CPRC_ExecSumEng.pdf
