Incidents such as abductions, missing persons, natural disasters and other community emergencies have the potential to tax the resources of a primary response agency (Police, Fire, EMS, etc).
It is for this reason that OVERT has been developed – to allow for easy and efficient integration of community volunteers.
Two other Lancer teams are blazing a path toward their national title challenges this weekend. The women’s basketball team is in Ottawa for the CIS east regional, looking to earn a berth in the Bronze Baby tournament.
The men’s hockey team will face the UQTR Patriotes in the OUA bronze medal game Sunday; the winner advances to play for the University Cup. Community liaison officer for Campus Police Services, she takes pride in the showing of a UWindsor team in a skills competition held in Baltimore last month as part of the National Collegiate Emergency Medical Services Foundation Conference. Five took part in the skills competition, which measures response to scenarios based on actual EMS calls: Kyle Brown, Adam Bulkiewicz, Samantha Leahy, Andrew Peltier and Dara Tate. Members of the University of Windsor Emergency Response Team showed their dedication with a top-three finish in a skills competition.

DURHAM -- When the community needs help, OVERT volunteers are ready at a moment’s notice. Now, the Ontario Volunteer Emergency Response Team is looking for a little help of its own. Inside, team members use laptops to run digital maps and dispatch software to keep track of volunteers in the field.
OVERT, a registered charity based in Durham Region, is made up of 130 highly trained search and rescue volunteers, who assist emergency first responders.
The unique concept was developed because major incidents such as abductions, natural disasters and missing person cases have the potential to tax the resources of first responders such as police, fire and paramedics.
In 2012, local OVERT volunteers also travelled to the northern Ontario Attawapiskat reserve to deliver aid.
Over the past 20 years, OVERT has been involved with more than 100 search-and-rescue operations in Ontario.
Responding to the need for blood, Ontario Provincial Police Emergency Response team rise to the challenge.
Friday July 12th, the Ottawa Paramedic Service hosted the Bloodmobile with Ottawa Fire Services, Ottawa Police and the Ontario Provincial Police in helping to recruit blood donors.
It happens like clockwork – every 56 days the Ottawa blood donor clinic on Carling Avenue plays host to a group of 12-20 dedicated donors from the Ontario Provincial Police Emergency Response Team.


Their first donation, in April of 2012, became the story for the Eastern Ontario region’s Easter campaign and the group has never looked back, enthusiastically participating in local Sirens for Life campaigns and working to promote blood donation to other OPP detachments across Ontario. She received a similar honour at the Ontario University Athletics championship after she won gold in the 300m and the 4x200 relay and added silver medals in the 60m hurdles and the 4x400. Dedicated enough to compete well against state-registered emergency medical technicians, says Rose Briscoe. The Windsor team placed first in the medical and communication competitions and in the top five of the trauma situation.

OVERT has launched an online fundraising campaign in order to replace the main command post, which has been in operation since 1998 and has supported more than 100 search and rescue operations in Ontario.
The team’s goal is to raise $20,000 to be able to continue at full scale capacity during times of crisis in the community.
