Calgary Renaissance announces John O’Connell
and Liam Flaherty of the New York City Fire Department will be the
special guest at this years Calgary Woman’s Show.
CALGARY, AB – April 4, 2002
Calgary Renaissance Corporation, working with
the Calgary Women’s Show, would like to officially announce that
New York City firefighters John O’Connell and Liam Flaherty will
be this year’s special guest.
John O’Connell is a 23 year veteran of the New
York Fire Department, while having spent 14 of those years with
Rescue 3 otherwise known as “Big Blue” which serves the
Bronx/Harlem area of New York City. On September 11, 2002 John was
at Ground Zero helping out in the rescue mission that ensued after
the tragedy that changed the world. We, at Calgary Renaissance are
sad to report that John lost 7 brothers of the “Big Blue” family
that day. John has helped out on many rescue missions in his
tenure with NYFD, such as assisting with Oklahoma City, Puerto
Rico, and the other World Trade Centre attack.
Liam Flaherty, 36, has been with FDNY for the
past 12 years and works in Rescue Company 4 located in the Queens
area of New York; Rescue 4 dates back to 1931. Liam is an
instructor with the Fire Academy, where he teaches others life
saving rescue techniques. Liam also teach Scuba Diving rescue with
the academy. Liam has a flare for music, as he is the Drum Major
with the FDNY Pipes and Drum band, which takes part in numerous
different parades. On Sept. 11 2002 Liam was also at ground zero
lending his expertise to the rescue mission. Liam’s company also
suffered the lost of seven brothers that fateful day.
“We wanted to bring some real life heroes to
the forefront, and allow the women of Calgary have a chance to
meet and hear from someone who was personally involved in a
history changing event” Calgary Renaissance CEO Grant Doyle said.
With all the experience that John and Liam bring to the table, we
could not think of two better candidates to tell their story to
the women and people of Calgary.
John is on several national and international
committees dealing with the Urban Search and Rescue area of
firefighting. He is also part of the Federal Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) Urban Search & Rescue (US&R) response system. John
currently takes his knowledge all around the world, helping train
others for Urban Search & Rescue.
FEMA US&R have 28 teams across the United
States and they are used to assist with any Urban Search and
Rescue. More information can be found for both Rescue 3 and FEMA
on their web sites at www.fema.gov/usr/ and www.fdnyrescue3.com/ respectively.
Effective March 11th, 2002, Calgary Renaissance announces that the
company's ownership structure has changed. Grant Doyle, CEO
of Calgary Renaissance, is now the sole owner of Calgary
Renaissance, having recently purchased all of the outstanding shares
held by company's President, Greg Habstritt. Doyle and
Habstritt co-founded the company in 2001 and organized one of the
largest corporate events in Calgary's recent history, "An
Evening with President Clinton".
Doyle will also take on the role of President moving forward, in
addition to being the company's CEO. "I'm very excited to build
on the momentum that Calgary Renaissance has created thus far and I
am very appreciative of all the effort and talent Greg brought to
the start-up of the company. Since Greg is involved in a number of
projects that require his time, we both felt that this was the right
Habstritt added, "starting Calgary Renaissance with Grant was
an extremely exciting project. I wish Grant all the best in building
on the corporate vision he has mapped out for the future."
