Over the years, Beth’s insightful yet practical approach has been key to many of OFMEM’s successes.  Her more recent contributions have been recognized through several awards including a 2008 Ovation Award for Outstanding Achievement (Sunrise Propane Explosion – OFM Response Team), 2014 Ovation Award for Partnerships (MCSCS Fire Safety for Vulnerable Occupancies Team), and a 2014 Amethyst Award Nomination for the Carbon Monoxide Legislation and Regulation Team.  Beth will be sorely missed by  all of us in the different fire departments around the Province that have relied on her for her expertise.
