Also of interest, is OHMRA’s use of “WhatsApp”.
OHMRA’s vice chair, Steve Clark has set up multiple accounts for use by OHMRA members. This will allow the users to focus their concerns amongst their peers, as they reach out for support and comments on procedures, equipment, etc. The specific accounts are:
OHMRA Law Enforcement
OHMRA Designated Officer
To be added to any group, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please, stay safe, stay healthy and reach out to your Association to assist you where we can.
First let me say, I hope all our members and their families are doing well during this Public Health Emergency known as Covid-19.
OHMRA has been contacted by some members, who were sourcing equipment and services, as well as looking for consultation on equipment choices and protocols.
I would ask all members to continue sharing or searching for information on Covid-19 response, using our various What’s App applications or emailing any of our Executives and Branch Officers.
We will do our best to support you during these tough times.
As the current emergency is very fluid, we will continue to make the necessary changes as required.
Please EVERYONE stay safe, and let's all work together to resolve this Covid-19 situation.
