New award honors emergency management volunteer

Bev Stenning Excellence in Emergency Management Memorial Award will be presented annually to JIBC students

A special award has been named in honour of Bev Stenning in recognition of her contribution to service and leadership in the Capital Region Emergency Awareness Network.

Stenning, who died in March, was an “exemplary volunteer, teacher and leader who contributed greatly” to the emergency management community in B.C. since she joined the Victoria Emergency Management Agency in 2002.

The Bev Stenning Excellence in Emergency Management Memorial Award will be presented annually to students enrolled in the Justice Institute of B.C.’s emergency management certificate program, or the emergency and security management diploma or degree programs.

“Bev was exemplary in her work, whether it was in the classroom or in the field,” said Tom Burchill, Capital Region Emergency Awareness Network spokesperson.

“All who knew and volunteered with Bev will carry her memory deep in their hearts whenever the call comes to respond. In the field of emergency management, she truly was royalty.”

JIBC students with a demonstrated financial need can apply for the award by June 30.

To make a financial contribution to the Bev Stenning Excellence in Emergency Management Memorial Award, please visit The JIBC Foundation’s online donation page or call 604-528-5877.
