I emigrated from Amsterdam, the Netherlands to
Kitchener, Canada this past year. Previous to this
move, I worked for the Amsterdam Fire Department
in progressively senior positions and gained much
experience in the operational and organizational
functioning of the Dutch Fire Services and her
partners. The Amsterdam Fire Services is an
organization consisting of 1100 employees divided
over several departments, and faced with many
safety challenges.

I have very much enjoyed my career with the
Amsterdam Fire Services these past eight years, and
I would like to continue along this career path in

As a Senior Emergency Manager I have been in
charge of the team responsible for the operational
preparedness of the fire services and her partners
(emergency planning). In this position I was
responsible for budgeting and finances, human
resources (recruitment included), planning and
strategic setting of goals. Together with the head of
the department of Crisis Management and
Operational Preparedness and my counterpart in
crisis management I formed the management team
of the department. My education as a political and
organizational advisor has equipped me with the
skills necessary to negotiate politically sensitive
issues and build productive partnerships across
groups of varied backgrounds and cultures
including partners such as Police and Emergency
Medical Services.

Since 2006 I have also held a position as an
Operational Senior Officer (Platoon Chief). I was
responsible for leadership and supervision at
firefighting and other incidents (taking over
command), decision making at the incident
(tactics), coordinating between emergency services
during incidents, and personnel and resource
administration. During a 24 hour shift I was in
command of over 100 firefighters and Captains,
and the Communication Centre for the region of
