Jay is a 14 year member of the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service as a Firefighter Paramedic with experience in hospital emergency rooms. He has been a part of both the Department’s technical rescue and water rescue teams, and is a published author of articles on emergency services and disaster management in both Canada and the US.

While emergencies and disasters, such as train derailments, may not always be preventable, the hazards and consequences can be significantly reduced through preparedness and knowing how to deal with stress and consequences.

This session will give an introduction to these concepts to help in the prevention, preparation, and reduction of your risk in a critical situation.

Life Members – Tour of Stanley Pauley Centre

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013


Tour of Stanley Pauley Centre


Wednesday, December 18, 2013 at 14:30pm.


Meet in EITC Atrium next to mini Hydro Tower at the University of Manitoba.


Dear Friends,

The “old” High Voltage Lab has been restored! Now known as The Stanley Pauley Centre, it houses three major laboratories: the Intelligent Power Grid Laboratory, the Electric Vehicles Laboratory, and the McMath High Voltage Laboratory as well as meeting rooms, offices and grad student space. We will be guests of the Faculty of Engineering.

Dean Jonathan Beddoes, or his back-up, will be available to provide a quick overview of how the restoration was enabled. There will be a chance to explore the renovated space with tech staff as your guides. As well, there will be coffee, tea and cookies to consume while discussions take place.

We will meet by the mini Hydro tower in the Atrium in the EITC (the Engineering Building) at 14 30, and then proceed to the Centre. Your best bet at parking during this time of year (exam time) is in the Parkade. The UofM web site has an excellent map.


Please RSVP by replying to, before noon on Tuesday, December 17.

Life Members: Luncheon Meeting

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012


Alternate Energy Sources – Biogas


Wednesday, October 31, 2012 at 12:00 noon.


Masonic Memorial Temple, 420 Corydon Ave., which is at Osborne St. and Corydon Ave.


Jeremy Langner, M.Sc. P.Eng


Dear Friends,

This will be the Fall meeting of the Society, and it has promise to be excellent. In the days when research started on the Alternate energies, they were Solar, Wind, and Biomass. Research has continued on the first two, but energy production from Biomass, being a slower process, has not had the same exposure to public view as the other two. In discussing the situation with our speaker, Jeremy, it became clear that the work which Manitoba Hydro is now doing is exactly what we need to advance our knowledge of the development of Biomass as an energy source.

Jeremy is going to give a presentation about three projects which Manitoba Hydro have in development. They are –

  • A biomass Gasifier
  • A biogas Project
  • An Organic Rankine cycle

Biomass is no stranger to Winnipeg. Winnipeg was the home of the Biomass Energy Institute up to about 1995, at which time we had to close down our operation owing to the withdrawal of Federal funding. The term “biomass” seems to have been coined in two places at about the same time. One was by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the other was by Ernie Robertson, the mainspring of the Biomass Energy Institute.

Hope to see you at the Masonic Memorial Temple on October 31. Our normal soup and sandwich lunch will be served.

This is also a very special meeting, as it is also an invitation and welcome to our friends in the IEE and IEEE. I have expanded the mailing list to include members of the IEEE. It is a Joint Meeting of the CSSE and the IEEE.

This is also the last meeting of my tour of duty. It has been my privilege to have arranged these meetings for several years, and I give a very big “Thank You” to those who have given help, advice, and suggestions.

Looking forward to seeing you all on October 31. Please invite anyone you know who would be interested in coming out to this event, either as a member or as a guest.

Many thanks,
Fred Stock, P.Eng.


RSVP no later than Friday, October 26, to Fred Stock, 269 2015, or It is important that you do this, as I depend on it to order the correct number of meals.
