60 Years of Saving Lives: Peter's Story

There are some MedicAlert team members who have seen it all. Peter is one of them. This year Peter is celebrating 15 years at MedicAlert – celebrating with an award for innovation and process improvement. Here’s how Peter has, and continues, to make an incredible impact for his co-workers as well as MedicAlert’s subscribers and partners.

60 Years of Partnerships: Acting Superintendent Rob Bernier’s Story

Following his high school experience, Ottawa Police Service (OPS) Acting Superintendent Rob Bernier, a Montreal native, thought he was bound for a career in the sciences when he started Collège d'enseignement général et professionnel, better known as CEGEP. But a series of experiences in his personal life left him wondering if perhaps he was meant for a different calling.

Fast forward nearly 30 years, and not only is Rob a 27 year policing veteran and father of two, but he has also committed his entire career working with the OPS – the last four years being a police champion for MedicAlert’s Connect Protect Program. [...]
