Bob Piggott (VE7 CYU), honoured by NSEM and awarded a ‘Lifetime Achievement Certificate’ in recognition of 37 years as a NSEM volunteer.
Bob has been a resident of North Vancouver since 1968 and has been a volunteer for NSEM since 1988!
He volunteered many countless hours as a volunteer in many roles – just to name a few:
* Coordinator of the NSEMO Emergency Radio Communications Team since 1988 – recruiting volunteers and providing ongoing training and support to team members. This volunteer drafted the emergency communications team plan for the office and helped to keep it up to date.
* He was one of the key organizers of the NSARC first ever-basic amateur radio licence training program which continues to this day.
* He was instrumental, along with others, in the long association of NSARC to makes it home here at NSEM in 1997.
* Communications Trainer
* Rapid Damage Assistance Instructor
•. Disaster First Aid
* Retired member of the NSEMO Emergency Management Team
* Advisor for Lions Gate Hospital on the development of the amateur radio component of their EOC
* Member of the North Shore Emergency Planning and Operations Group
Volunteers are a critical component of every emergency program but few have dedicated so much of their time and energy in the way Bob has volunteered for this office and his community.
In combination with his steadfast commitment to mentoring others and his cheerful attitude, he inspires others to experience volunteerism and to pull together to work as strong, confident and capable teams.
This lifetime achievement award is well earned and NSEM extends a huge thank you to Bob’s wife Beverley for supporting Bob in his endless hours of volunteerism.
We could not have had a great volunteer without the support of you, Beverley!
Congratulations, Bob (VE7CYU), very well deserved.
